Gillibrand, of Columbia County, faces a primary challenger for the remaining two years of Clinton's six-year term - former Bronx prosecutor Gail Goode.
Goode, however, has said she wants people to have a chance to elect their senator, rather than only have one appointed by the governor. Goode's primary petition included nearly 45,000 signatures from registered Democrats from more than half of the state's 29 congressional districts. Goode, also a former attorney for the New York City Transit Authority, is an advocate for high-speed rail, expanded affordable health care, marriage equality and increased federal funding for New York anti-terrorism measures. She is also a proponent of gun control.

"I believe I am the most qualified person on the ballot to represent the people of New York State in the U.S. Senate, and I am willing to prove that point," Goode said.
Goode will appear on the Democratic primary ballot, as the 45,000 petition signatures she filed on July 14 have not been challenged. Goode filed three times the required number of signatures, representing 24 of 29 Congressional districts in New York State. Goode challenged Gillibrand to a series of six debates - one a week until the primary - in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Saratoga, Poughkeepsie and Brooklyn. "Let's bring this discussion to the people and let them determine whose values best reflect New York State," Goode said. "Free and open debate is the only appropriate way help people choose a senator. We've seen what happens when decisions are made in back rooms - the people of New York State lose." Goode, who has served for 24 years as trial attorney for various New York City agencies, said she is undeterred by Gillibrand's campaign war chest. "I'm very used to battling private, well-funded attorneys," Goode said. Gail Goode for United States Senate: www.GailGoode.com.

Event Helps Support the Recruitment of Adoptive Families for Children in Foster Care Goode built an organization of citizens to collect over 45,000 signatures from registered Democrats, who agreed with her mission to give voters of the Empire State a choice for Senator in this year's Democratic Primary. Goode has been a tough lawyer and advocate for the people of the City of New York. As a Deputy Borough Chief in New York City's Tort Unit, Gail has tried and supervised hundreds of cases defending hardworking people and saving New York taxpayers millions in litigation costs. As a former Assistant District Attorney, Gail prosecuted career criminals who committed violent crimes against New Yorkers. David Paterson, Goode said, "I agree with Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer who said before he took himself out of the race, that "voters have an expectation for a Senate seat held by Kennedy and Moynihan, that there will be a discussion of these issues through the electoral process." "It is clear that all kinds of pressure was brought to bear on several potential candidates to make sure that Governor Paterson's appointee, Senator Gillibrand, did not have a serious opponent this year," said Gail Goode. Goode thinks New Yorkers are paying a very heavy price for the field being cleared for the Senator simply because those working for her do not believe she can defend her very weak and inconsistent voting record in a competitive election. Goode said: "The backroom pressure to push out potential challengers has robbed the ability of New Yorkers to put pressure on their Senate candidates to address their needs rather than the special interests and lobbyists that run congress and contribute to the Gillibrand campaign." Goode says leadership should not be limited to the latest poll results. With all her flip-flopping on major issues the Goode campaign will ask "Who is the real Kirsten Gillibrand and what does she really believe? Perhaps this issue most of all is illustrative of the difference between Ms. Goode and Ms. Gillibrand: Goode's life experiences make her better prepared to represent the interests of New Yorkers in the Senate. Goode believes that the American Democratic process and a real discussion on issues and ideas will defeat the millions that Gillibrand will spend on her campaign, donated by lobbyists and special interests that control what happens in Washington. Goode asks: What New Yorker if given a choice, would vote for a senator who tried to block a federal investigation into the connection between cancer and cigarette smoking? According to a New York Times op ed on April 9th, 2009 "Ms. Goode does not believe that voting against gun control legislation aimed at reducing the illegal guns that commit 90% of the serious crimes in New York, is an example of superior leadership. Goode knows what it is like to comfort a mother whose child was killed by an illegal handgun. Goode asks: What New Yorker if given a choice, would vote for a Senator who voted against preventing the collapse of the most important industry in the state? Goode will support Wall Street Jobs but at the same time fight the special interests on Wall Street to make sure 401Ks and pension funds are not turned into junk bonds. "Primaries give people a voice," says Goode. Gail Goode understands that her campaign faces many high hurdles. "Gillibrand has the advantage when it comes to money and supporters," said Goode. Goode believes that many of our nation's problems are caused by the type of person we send to Washington. Gail Goode believes that it is a matter of civic duty for average citizens to get involved and help solve our nation's problems. People for Gail Goode Press Contact: 917-671-8116.
