( - Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-N.Y.) said in a Tweet on Monday that she is running for president because as a mother of young children she believes we need a president who fights for families.

“I’ve said since day one that I’m running because as a mom of young kids, I think we need a president who fights for families as if they were his own,” Gillibrand said.

“A president who leads with compassion, not ego,” she said. “I think it’s time we had a mom in the Oval Office.”

In another Tweet that she sent out on Sunday, Gillibrand said: “I’m not a candidate who happens to be a mom; being a mom is a big part of what I’m running for. Every decision we make as a country now affects the next generations—we can’t let those decisions be made by people who care about profits more than families.”
