Gillibrand Has Many Female Donors

In her first years in the Senate, Kirsten Gillibrand traveled to major cities across the country to start female-centric donor circles to elevate women in politics, harkening back to her own political awakening as a donor in a male-dominated space.

Now, the New York Democrat is returning to those groups — some of which now contribute over $1 million to candidates per election — and asking them to help make her the first female president of the United States.

Gillibrand has visited more than a half-dozen groups in the Electing Women Alliance, a loose coalition of donor circles, early this year as she and Democratic presidential contenders tapped their financial networks to make early shows of strength.
