U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is keeping a busy schedule at the Democratic National Convention this week.
Gillibrand has two public events in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday. She will speak at the state Democratic Party breakfast that morning and take part in a panel on women's leadership Wednesday afternoon put on by EMILY's List and Marie Claire magazine.
Gillibrand is running her second Senate campaign since her appointment in 2009 to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Her Republican challenger is New York City attorney Wendy Long.
