Kirsten Gillibrand is launching more than $1 million worth of television and digital advertisements as she tries to jump-start a presidential campaign that’s gained little traction in the polls.

The 30-second spot will run on television in Iowa and New Hampshire, sites of the first two presidential nominating contests, the campaign said, as well as online. So far, she’s booked $42,150 in air time, all in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, according to Advertising Analytics LLC, which tracks political advertising spending. It’s the New York senator’s first TV buy of the election, and one the campaign says will help her qualify for the next round of debates.
