Gillibrand leads ‘Happy Birthday’ to Warren in South Carolina

Aaron Schwartz

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y) led a crowd to sing “Happy Birthday” to her presidential challenger Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when the two saw each other in South Carolina Saturday.

Gillibrand’s campaign tweeted a video of her leading a crowd to sing the song to the Massachusetts Democrat Saturday, with a grinning Gillibrand holding Warren’s hand as the room sings, before Warren ends the performance with a bow.

The two candidates appeared in South Carolina this weekend for House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn’s (D-S.C.) annual Fish Fry, where 21 of the 24 announced Democratic 2020 contenders made bids for South Carolina voters ahead of the state’s early primary.{mosads}

Warren, whose birthday is June 22, turned 70 this year as she and Gillibrand seek the party’s 2020 nomination for president.

Though no longer in her 60s, the Massachusetts senator remains the youngest of the current Democratic Party frontrunners: former Vice President Joe Biden is 76, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is 77.

Gillibrand, who celebrated her 56th birthday in December, is one of the younger Democrats in the pack, though the youngest candidate accolade goes to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who is 37.
