Kirsten Gillibrand drops out of the 2020 presidential race

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has announced she’s ending her bid for the Democratic nomination for president.


“I know this isn’t the result that we wanted. We wanted to win this race,” she said in an online video. “But it’s important to know when it’s not your time.” Gillibrand failed to make the cut-off for the next DNC debate.

She told The New York Times that she will endorse another candidate in the race, but did not say which one. She gave a hint, though: “I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country,” she said, adding, “I think a woman nominee would be inspiring and exciting.” That narrows it down a bit.
