Some Tweets from Kirsten Gillibrand

  • Our farmers, rural businesses, and working families shouldn't have to pay the price for President Trump's continued chaos in trade negotiations. China needs to be held accountable for greedy trade practices, but Americans deserve a strategy—not a tantrum.
  • Another awesome weekend in New Hampshire in the books. See you soon!
  • Don’t be afraid to break the mold if it needs to be broken. Congratulations, class of 2019!
  • Choose to be brave as you find your voice, and use it often and loudly. When others try to stifle it, raise it that much louder.
  • To all of this year's college graduates: No matter how uncertain you feel about the path ahead of you, you are valuable. Your voice is important. And your bravery can make a difference. Watch my commencement address to the Class of 2019:
  • What is happening in Georgia and Alabama should be a wake-up call on reproductive rights for the entire country. Extreme politicians are putting women's lives in danger. If we aren't taking serious steps to fight back, we're not paying enough attention.
  • Thanks, Hampton, for bringing all your thoughtful questions—and adorable future voters.

    Thank you for your commitment to gun safety and common sense legalization.
  • Talking about what's at stake in this election at Tilton Brothers Brewing in Hampton, NH—join us!
  • Goffstown came ready with some great questions about reproductive rights, gun violence, student debt and so much more. Thanks for having me! (Bonus: I found a great Mother’s Day gift for my mom!)

  • I just got to take a tour of and learn about their products and their student training program. These students are getting on-the-job experience, and I’m so excited to watch their program grow. Thanks for having me!
  • Kicking off another great weekend in New Hampshire! I'm talking to voters and answering questions about important issues in Goffstown—tune in live:
  • I think elected officials could learn a lot from drag queens. It takes real courage to be unapologetically yourself, to go against the grain, and to fight for what's right. To me, that's the definition of brave.
  • Valuing working Americans means supporting the unions that make our communities strong. It was a pleasure meeting with leaders from while I was in Nevada this week, and I'm looking forward to many more conversations on how we can keep fighting for working families.
  • This isn’t a game, or a hypothetical threat. It’s why I’m drawing a line in the sand on our judiciary—our next president has to.
  • Insurance companies denied coverage to Karl and Wendy when they needed it most. Their story proves that when we let private insurance companies call the shots, the results are inhumane. We must expand access through Medicare For All—not make devastating cuts to coverage.
  • No one should ever have to make the impossible choice between a paycheck and caring for a loved one. SB 1 would have brought thousands of New Hampshire families paid leave—what every family deserves. Governor Sununu's veto is a disgrace.
  • Reproductive rights are civil rights, and the next president needs to fight for them. Help guarantee my spot in the debates so this issue is put center stage—where it belongs:
