READ: Donald Trump Jr. Responds to Kirsten Gillibrand Saying She’s Running ‘Unabashedly as a Mom’ With ‘Said No One Ever…Delete Your Account’

November of 2020 is just under two years away and the crop of Democratic candidates who will take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election continues to grow.

Among them is Kirsten Gillibrand. The New York Senator is currently touring the country to speak with voters and potential supporters.

On Tuesday, Senator Gillibrand tweeted an article asserting that—though some might think it’s risky—she’s running “unabashedly as a mom.” She’s likely right about the risk, considering a cultural climate in which the vast majority of male presidential candidates (and subsequent presidents) in the past have had children, but only female candidates have had to grapple with questions pitting parenthood against the presidency.
