Gillibrand rolls through key states to stay alive

U.S. Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is barnstorming through the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan with one clear message... 'He broke it.

We'll fix it.'

He, of course, is President Donald Trump...The we, she hopes will include her as the Democratic nominee to take on the President in 2020.

But Gillibrand has a lot of catching up to do.

She's polling at the low-end of the field of 25 Democratic contenders and time is running out.

Her plan: go face-to-face in economically-hit cities from Pittsburgh, P.A.

To Bloomsfield Hills, Michigan and remind them: SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND, 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "He's broken his promises and that they need a president who will do what's right even when it's hard.

That's what this is about -showing the stark difference between who President Trump said he would be and who he actually is and then tell the American people who I am and why I'm running for president." Gillibrand- a New York senator- knows she doesn't have national name recognition like former Vice President Biden or fellow senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, she's hoping to change that -one tour bus stop at a time.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND, 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "I have a history of taking on fights that other people won't and winning; bringing red, purple and blue places together in my own state; winning in two more Republican districts twice last time with a 24-point margin.

And just winning back 18 counties from President Trump, so I can bring this country together and I can heal this country." Gillibrand isn't all talk.

She's also listening and taking selfies along the way, all the while keeping her eye on the tough road ahead.

Here's the challenge: In order to make it on stage for the third debate in September, Gillibrand will have to at least draw 2% support in four national or early-voting state polls.

She remains at just one percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll taken before the July 4th holiday and fared even worse in a NBC/WSJ poll released Thursday.

And her campaign has not revealed latest quarterly fundraising numbers.

But that's not stopping Gillibrand from getting back on that bus in an attempt to tell her story in the next town.
