Kirsten Gillibrand announced her exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential bid, the NY lawmaker officially kicked off her candidacy Sunday.

"We need a leader who makes big, bold, courageous choices", Gillibrand said in a video released on Sunday morning.

Addressing Democrats in his home state of DE, he said his record was the most progressive "of anyone running for the United-" before correcting himself: "anybody who would run".

In the video launching her bid, Ms Gillibrand takes aim at President Donald Trump, saying: "Brave doesn't pit people against each other".

Gillibrand made the announcement in a video entitled Brave Wins posted online early Sunday.

Gillibrand never mentions Trump by name, but speaks over footage of neo-Nazi demonstrators and the president with a crowd of his supporters. Others argue a fresh face, and particularly a diverse one, is needed to energize the party's increasingly left-leaning base. Fearless doesn't spread hate, cloud truth, build a wall. This is the stuff of fairy tales, not facts, but remember - "we landed on the moon", so anything is possible.

More than a dozen Democrats are already running, including several women for the first time.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes will interview Gillibrand on Monday for a town hall. On Tuesday, Gillibrand heads to Iowa - which votes first in the presidential nominating calendar - and later in the week makes a trip to Nevada, which is the first western state to vote. She also revealed she will give a speech in front of Trump Hotel in NYC on Friday.

With her declaration, Gillibrand becomes the 14th major Democrat to officially launch a presidential campaign.

They include Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders - who ran against Hillary Clinton in 2016 - and ex-Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke. Even former Rep. John Delaney (D., Md.) got the support of one Maryland House member.

The announcement was widely expected after the 52-year-old champion of women's rights told TV host Stephen Colbert in January she would be forming an exploratory committee. A female Senate staffer for Gillibrand resigned in 2018 after her complaints about sexual harassment by a senior advisor didn't result in his firing. Subsequently, she positioned herself as an advocate of women's issues within her party and became a forceful proponent of the #MeToo movement, authoring a children's book a year ago titled Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote.
