Gillibrand Hires New Aide, Signaling Presidential Run Is Imminent [View all]


Depending on when she announces her decision, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York could become the second high-profile Democrat to join the race, after Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York has hired a communications director for an expected presidential campaign, a sign that she is all but certain to join the race against President Trump and that her entry may be imminent.

Ms. Gillibrand has recruited Meredith Kelly, formerly the top spokeswoman at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, as a senior aide to her prospective 2020 campaign, two people familiar with the decision said. Ms. Kelly was part of the team at the House committee that helped the party capture the majority in 2018, overseeing the group’s media strategy during the midterm elections.

The hire is part of a flurry of activity by Ms. Gillibrand in recent weeks as the 2020 campaign gets underway. Politico reported on Thursday night that she is preparing a trip to Iowa later this month and has been in touch with potential campaign staff members there.

Glen Caplin, a spokesman for Ms. Gillibrand, declined to comment.

Taking the step of actually retaining new staff — rather than merely conducting interviews or planning out staff recruitment — indicates that Ms. Gillibrand is probably in the very last stages of preparing for the 2020 race. Once politicians raise or spend more than $5,000 on their candidacy, they have just 15 days to file paperwork forming a campaign with the Federal Election Commission.
