'I took on my own party'

Email a Friend

Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's first ad tries to defend herself against being associated too closely with Washington, or the Democratic establishment.

In a straight-to-camera shot, Gillibrand's first words are "I haven't been in Washington long…" Later, she makes a point of saying she "took on my own party."

Notably, she doesn't say which party of hers she took on.
