About Kirsten Gillibrand
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) was first sworn in as United States Senator from New York in January 2009. After winning a special election in 2010 to serve out the remainder of Secretary Clinton’s term in the Senate, Kirsten was elected to her first full six-year term in 2012 with a New York statewide record 72 percent of the vote, winning 60 of New York’s 62 counties. Prior to joining the Senate, Kirsten served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2007 to early 2009 for New York’s upstate 20th Congressional district spanning 10 counties. Since joining the Senate in 2009, Kirsten has made her presence felt. In 2010, she helped lead the fight to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and overcame fierce partisan opposition to provide health care and compensation for the 9/11 first responders who are sick and dying from breathing the toxins at Ground Zero. Her work led TIME Magazine to name her as one of 2014’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” and the NY Daily News to place her number four on its list of “50 Most Powerful Women in New York.”
