Who is Gillibrand talking about?

“We have Democratic candidates running for president right now who do not believe necessarily that it’s a good idea that women work outside the home,” she said emphatically before a women’s labor event in Iowa City, Iowa. “No joke.”

Ms. Gillibrand did not name names, and her campaign would not say whom she was referring to.

Put up or shut up Kristen. You can't just throw out an accusation like that without naming names. Is she saving this "bombshell" for the debate? Methinks she's full of it.
