Report: Gillibrand Raises More Than $3M

ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP)New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will report raising more than $3 million in campaign cash during the first quarter of the year, a personal best notched as the recently elected Democrat noticeably burnished her public profile.

Gillibrand said in an email thanking supporters that she broke the $3 million mark for the federal reporting period ending Thursday. The email was obtained by The Associated Press.

Elected to fill the unexpired term of Hillary Rodham Clinton in November, Gillibrand now faces re-election to a full term in 2012.

Gillibrand has taken on high-profile roles in the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law for gay troops and the passage of legislation to provide benefits to Sept. 11 responders.

Recent polls have shown her with her highest ratings as senator.
