Told New Yorkers last fall that she would serve her full term if reelected.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is reportedly going to announce her plans to run for president tonight on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Her team probably chose the Colbert show because it has become a nightly celebration of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Andrew O’Reilly reports at FOX News:
Gillibrand to announce presidential bid during appearance on ‘Colbert’ show, report says
New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will become the next Democrat to enter the 2020 presidential fray, according to CBS News, which reported Monday that she will announce her formation of an exploratory committee Tuesday during an appearance on the network’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The Associated Press, citing people familiar with Gillibrand’s plans, also reported that she would launch a White House bid “within days.” Representatives for the senator had no immediate comment when contacted by Fox News.
Gillibrand – who heads to the early caucus state of Iowa this weekend – would become the fifth Democrat, and the second senator, to officially jump into a presidential primary that could feature dozens of candidates before all is said and done…
While Gillibrand’s prominence as a face of her party has grown, she faces a tough battle to capture the attention of Democratic voters in a crowded field that’s expected to include multiple women. Several of her potential rivals have spent more time in critical primary states while Gillibrand has visited just one — New Hampshire — in October to stump for the Democratic candidate for governor.
Gillibrand has some major obstacles to overcome in this primary. She threw the Clintons under the bus the minute they were no longer useful to her, many people on the left blame her for the ousting of Al Franken, and finally, she is already breaking a promise she made during last fall’s election.
During a debate just a few months ago, Gillibrand said if reelected, she would serve her full term. Here’s the exchange via the Washington Examiner:
Moderator: “Can you tell New Yorkers, who plan to vote for you on Nov. 6, that you will, if re-elected, serve out your six-year Senate term?”
Gillibrand: “I will.”
Moderator: “Just want to make this clear, you’re saying that you will not get out of the race and you will not run for president? You will serve your six years?”
Gillibrand: “I will serve my six-year term.”

Do you think Colbert will ask her about that?
