***New York State Democratic Committe Designates Gillibrand As Democratic Nomintee For US Senate***
Chairman Jacobs: “Gillibrand Has Proven Herself To Be A Force in the U.S. Senate As An Effective Fighter for New York Families”
New York State Democratic Committee Chairman Jay Jacobs issued the following statement today after the Committee voted unanimously to officially designate Kirsten Gillibrand as the party’s nominee for re-election to the U.S. Senate:
"Senator Gillibrand has proven herself to be a force in the U.S. Senate as an extraordinarily effective fighter for all of New York's families. Whether passing the 9/11 Health Bill, strengthening our national security by repealing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', reforming Washington, giving our first responders the tools needed to save lives, or standing up for women's rights - Kirsten has been a true champion for New Yorkers.
“Senator Gillibrand has the right vision for how to grow our economy and strengthen the middle class rather than extend tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. With her leadership, I know we will see more ‘Made in America’ products from our outstanding manufacturers all across New York State.
“I am proud to call Kirsten Gillibrand the Democratic nominee and look forward to six more years of her outstanding leadership in the U.S. Senate."
