Gillibrand: NY Gov. Cuomo can endorse 'whoever he likes'


NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is shrugging off her state’s governor’s endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign over her own.

Speaking to reporters after an event Friday at a bar in Nashua, New Hampshire, Gillibrand said, “Our governor can endorse whoever he likes, but I am the best candidate to defeat President Trump, and I will.”

Fellow Democrat and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said he’s supporting Biden, who formally launched his White House bid Thursday.

Gillibrand said, “The truth is, this presidential election will not be won on the endorsements of powerful people.”

She later briefly played beer pong, successfully tossing a pingpong ball across a table and into a plastic glass of water, making her opponents take long swigs of beer.
