Will Kirsten Gillibrand drop out before the New York primary?


Kirsten Gillibrand, junior United States Senator for New York and former New York congresswoman, launched her Democratic presidential primary candidacy early in 2019. She has a "soaring national profile in the U.S. Senate" (Politico) and a particular appeal to college-educated women, but has struggled to break 1% in polling. It is still early, but the field is crowded and many other strong candidates have a path to the nomination.

By 28 April 2020, when New York's primary is expected to take place, most of the Democratic primary electorate will have already voted and the party convention will be just two-and-a-half months away.

Will Kirsten Gillibrand have dropped out of the Presidential race before voting opens in New York's primary election?

This resolves positive if before the 2020 New York Democratic primary, Kirsten Gillibrand has claimed to no longer intend to participate in as a candidate in the 2020 presidential elections. The 2020 New York Democratic primary is currently expected for Tuesday, April 28, 2020, but this could change. Resolution should be supported by credible news reports.
