New York Gov. Paterson to Name Rep. Gillibrand to Clinton's Fo...
She is clearly not the most
qualified. There is a lot of
political calculation in this
New York Gov. David Paterson will name Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand, an upstate Democrat, to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate, a Democratic official with knowledge of the governor's decision told FOX News on Thursday night.
Gillibrand, elected in 2006, represents the state's 20th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is the first Democrat to represent the district since 1978 -- and the first female representative of the district.
Paterson is scheduled to formally announce his pick Friday.
