In 2020, White house hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says she will serve the call, in any capacity; Peter Doocy reports from Iowa.

Democratic presidential candidate sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Tuesday indicated that they are open to as your party’s Vice presidential candidate if her White house bid fails.

“I’m here to serve,” the senator from New York told Fox News on Tuesday. “Can I serve in any capacity.”

A day earlier, the senator also said in an interview with the Washington Post that “of course”, you would be open to the as a running mate, the future Democratic presidential candidate. White house hopefuls rarely about the possibility of the acceptance of the number two slot, while for the top job.


But Gillibrand has to fight to stand apart from the record-pack of Democratic presidential contender since the campaign launch in January, and you can’t debate the third round of qualifying for the next month of the primary. She is close to meeting one of the two thresholds announced by the Democratic National Committee than 130,000 contributions from individual donors. But with one week to go, it is three surveys short of reaching the other criteria – to beat, to 2 percent in four qualifying national or the early voting state polls.

After a campaign event in New Hampshire, focusing on the mental health crisis, a self-conscious Gillibrand told Fox News, “I’m not planning on making this round.”

As of Tuesday, the 10 candidates say they have qualified for the third and fourth round of discussions. They are: former Vice-President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey, South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg, the former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, Sen. Kamala Harris, of California, Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, former Rep. Beto O’rourke of Texas Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Sen. Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and entrepreneur Andrew Yang, sen.


Hours after Castro announced that he would be the stage on Tuesday, Gillibrand made an appeal to those who on your campaign to the E-Mail distribution list, say it “are now just 8 days until the DNC period, and we are closer to the 130,000 donors, we need to secure my place, but I’m still not there.”

Billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer – who announced his candidacy in early July – has the donor threshold, and a survey is removed from the stage. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii has also to the donor threshold, but two surveys shy of the qualification.

Washington state. Gov. Jay Inslee has backed up than 130,000 contributions from individual donors, but has yet to reach the polling threshold.
