Kirsten Gillibrand In 2016?
The New York senator is raising her national profile.
She set tongues wagging about her future at last month’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., with an address to delegates from Iowa, an early proving ground in every presidential race.
Gillibrand also has been quietly helping Democratic candidates across America by raising money for them and donating to their campaigns through two political action committees she created.
Taken together, the moves are raising her profile nationally — and generating IOUs that she could cash in to support her own political ambitions one day…
National and state Democrats acknowledge murmurs that Gillibrand might be interested in a 2016 presidential run — though many note she wouldn’t even be the first choice in her own state, where insiders obsess about the potential candidacies of Clinton and Cuomo.
