Gillibrand, Back to White-Shoe Roots

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is on Long Island today for the next leg of her statewide travels, but she found time to meet this week with lawyers at the two white-shoe firms where she previously worked.

Gillibrand stopped by Davis, Polk & Wardwell early Thursday morning, a person familiar with the visit said, to schmooze with old colleagues. Gillibrand has set a goal of raising $20 million before the 2010 election. While the event wasn’t an explicit fund-raiser, that was certainly the overtone.

Gillibrand also visited Boies, Schiller & Flexner on Wednesday for a similar gathering, the same source said.
