Paterson Picks Gillibrand to Replace Clinton

Well, well, well.

ALBANY — Gov. David A. Paterson has selected Representative Kirsten Gillibrand, a 42-year-old congresswoman from upstate who is known for bold political moves and centrist policy positions, to fill the United States Senate seat vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to a person who spoke to the governor early Friday.

Although she's a Democrat, Gillibrand has a solid pro-RKBA voting record.

It'll be refreshing to not see another member of a polical dynasty in the Senate.
