(TeaParty.org) – It’s not unsurprising for an elected official to do an about-face once they’re in office and change their stance on crucial campaign promises, but Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand just took the cake.
The New York Senator, who had promised constituents she would serve her full six-year term in the Senate during the election, is now floating a 2020 run despite previously denying that she would.
She revealed her change of heart on The Late Show with Steven Colbert this week.
“I do think it’s an important question,” Gillibrand replied when she was asked if she was considering a presidential run. “I believe its a moral question for me … And as I’ve traveled across my state, across this country for all these candidates, I’ve seen the hatred and division that President Trump has put into our country and it has called me to fight as hard as I possibly can restore the moral compass of this country.”
“I believe right now that every one of us should figure out how we can do whatever we can with our time, with our talents to restore that moral decency, that moral compass, that truth of who we are as Americans,” she continued. “So I will promise you I will give it a long, hard thought of consideration. I will do that.”
Just two weeks earlier, as the Daily Caller reported, she had pledged during a debate with her GOP challenger to “serve [her] six year term” if she won re-election.
Too late for voters to do anything about that now, huh?
