Gillibrand has told the New York Times that she would like the party to nominate a woman to go against President Donald Trump.

“I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country,” Gillibrand told the Times.”I think a woman nominee would be inspiring and exciting.”

Earlier in the day, she made the announcement on Twitter that she was ending her campaign.

“Today, I am ending my campaign for president,” the NY Senator tweeted. “I am so proud of this team and all we’ve accomplished. But I think it’s important to know how you can best serve. To our supporters: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Now, let’s go beat Donald Trump and win back the Senate.”
