Up Close: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is telling women to get off the sidelines.

She's on a mission to get more women involved in the political process.

Gillibrand was a little known congresswoman from Columbia County when she was appointed to the Senate by Governor David Paterson to replace Hillary Clinton back in 2009.
