The woman who replaced Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate parts ways with Minority leader Harry Reid when it comes to New Hampshire's first-in-the nation primary status.
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who graduated from Dartmouth College, says "I think it's a great American tradition, and I'm totally OK with it."
Gillibrand made her comments to NH1 Radio News this week after Nevada Senator Harry Reid drew the ire of New Hampshire Democrats by suggesting New Hampshire and Iowa have too much influence over presidential politics, specifically saying of New Hampshire "no one lives there".
Gillibrand doesn't see it that way, saying of the New Hampshire primary, "It's worked well, so I don't have any complaints."
The Democratic Senator spoke to NH1 News just hours before her friend, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, took the stage for the first Democratic Presidential debate. Gillibrand was appointed to Clinton's Senate seat in 2009 when President Obama appointed Clinton to the cabinet position, then won re-election in 2010.
Asked if Clinton would be ready should Vice President Joe Biden enter the campaign, Gillibrand said simply, "I think if the Vice President wants to run he should run."
