During a live event with The Washington Post’s Robert Costa, Ms. Gillibrand cited her Trump-supporting uncles in upstate New York as evidence that she has a unique “sensibility and an understanding” of how Republican voters “see the world.”
“I have not spoken to them about it, so I cannot tell you why. I’m still angry,” she added later. “And I didn’t find out from them, by the way. I found out from my cousin, because she was at an event with me. She was like, ‘Well, you know, I’m talking to my dad about it,’ and I was like, ‘What?’ And she tells me this, and I said, ‘That can’t be true. They knew how much I loved Hillary. That can’t be true!’”
Ms. Gillibrand is polling at less than 1% in the crowded Democratic presidential primary, according to the Real Clear Politics latest average.
