Gillibrand campaign event interrupted by woman seeking ranch dressing

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) was briefly interrupted at a campaign event in Iowa City, Iowa, by a woman on a quest for condiments.

While speaking to voters at a bar/restaurant in the city, Gillibrand was distracted by a woman who appeared to be approaching her, only to be told by the apologizing woman that she was “just trying to get some ranch” dressing.

Video of the humorous exchange was shared thousands of times on social media, with 190,000 people having viewed the clip within less than 24 hours of its posting.

{mosads}Gillibrand is visiting the state as part of an early push for support in the Iowa caucuses, which will serve as the first primary contest of the 2020 campaign season. The New York senator faces a crowded field of Democrats pushing for voters in the state, including fellow Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Other Democrats who have not yet announced 2020 bids, including Gov. Steve Bullock (D-Mont.), have visited the state in recent months, indicating that the primary field could continue to grow.
