BOONE, Iowa — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand represents one of the biggest and bluest states in America, anchored by the nation’s largest urban metropolis. But as she made her way across snowy Iowa during her first visit as a presidential candidate, Ms. Gillibrand put far more emphasis on her upstate New York roots, bipartisanship and small-town political ancestry.
She talked about her love of RVs and her family vacation last summer to see a Nascar race — and suggested she could make an RV trip in Iowa this year. She spoke of her faith and finding common ground with Republicans. And she harked back repeatedly to her first run for Congress, in 2006, when she ousted a Republican incumbent in a seat that her pollster warned she couldn’t win because there were “more cows than Democrats.”
“I grew up in upstate New York, a community not unlike this one,” Ms. Gillibrand said as she introduced herself at a house party in Sioux City on Friday evening. Of her first race, she said, “It was a two-to-one Republican district, a lot like the district we’re in today.”
The next morning, inside a cafe in Boone, she told the dozen or so people there: “I really appreciate being in a rural place. I’m from a rural place. I grew up in a rural place. I represented a rural place for Congress.”
At a political moment when many Democratic voters are desperate to find a winner who can beat President Trump, Ms. Gillibrand’s emphasis on her past representing a conservative House seat seemed an effort to ensure she is not pigeonholed as just another blue-state Democrat, or someone who does not understand rural America.
To that end, Ms. Gillibrand has placed her campaign headquarters in Troy, N.Y., near where she grew up and in her old House district but relatively far from a major urban center (though a short drive to New Hampshire). She made her first campaign appearance at a diner there, too.
“The thing she really reiterates is she isn’t from New York. She’s from upstate,” said J.D. Scholten, a Democrat who lost his 2018 House race to Representative Steve King, the Iowa Republican who has come under fire for his remarks on white supremacy and white nationalism.
Mr. Scholten, who attended two of Ms. Gillibrand’s events, said the problem with the current Democratic Party is that it’s “more and more a Whole Foods party and we’re in a Dollar General district.”
“She’s able to have that experience,” Mr. Scholten said of Ms. Gillibrand, “and that’s important for Democrats.”
The challenge for Ms. Gillibrand is that the candidate she was, ideologically, in 2006 to win that upstate district is no longer the candidate she is now. In the House, she had an A-rating from the National Rifle Association; now she has an F. Her stances on immigration have flipped, as well. She has said she is now embarrassed by her old positions.
Unlike Senator Elizabeth Warren, another Democratic contender, who has mostly avoided mentioning Mr. Trump on the campaign trail, Ms. Gillibrand offered plenty of direct attacks on the president, saying he had brought a “darkness” on the nation, using words like “heartless,” “immoral,” “inhumane” and “beyond disgraceful,” and citing his “racist message.”
Of the federal shutdown under Mr. Trump, she said, “He’s doing it all for himself and his own ego.”
But almost as often as she mentioned her voting record against Mr. Trump’s agenda or appointments, Ms. Gillibrand cited her across-the-aisle work with Republicans, including how she bonded with Senator Joni Ernst, an Iowa Republican, at Bible study, and name-dropping her alliance with Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican reviled by many Democrats, in her legislative battles on sexual assault in the military.
“I can work with anybody,” she said to laughs after mentioning Mr. Cruz.
In Boone, a town of about 12,500 people, a 43-year-old Iowan, Chris Bennett, asked Ms. Gillibrand to say what separated her most from what could be a sprawling field of two dozen or more Democratic candidates in 2020.
“I really believe that I can bring this country together,” she began her answer.
Voters mostly responded positively.
“We’ve had enough divisiveness over the last couple years,” said Amy Young, a college professor, whom Ms. Gillibrand pitched about finding common ground at a coffee shop in Ames. “We are one country. We need to remember that.”
Linda Santi, who met Ms. Gillibrand in Sioux City, said: “She talked about running in a red congressional district. That was important to me. How do we talk? How do we engage Trump voters in civil discourse?”
Ms. Santi saw Ms. Warren on her recent visit — Iowans famously love to size up their presidential candidates in person before making a decision — and said Ms. Gillibrand’s arrival was far more “downscale”: no street vendors hawking goods, no organized selfie line.
“Warren was pressing the populist button in more of an us-them kind of way,” Ms. Santi said.
In Sioux City, Ms. Gillibrand did get a question about her decision to become the first Democratic senator to call for the resignation of the former senator Al Franken in late 2017 following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Some Democratic donors and activists had lamented his departure and her role in it.
“Enough was enough,” Ms. Gillibrand said of the final allegation.
“Al Franken was entitled to whatever process he wanted,” she said. “If he wanted to stay and wait six months for his ethics hearing, he was entitled to whatever he wanted. His decision was to resign. My decision was not to remain silent.”
Several people at her events said they learned much of what they know about her from television appearance this week, including on Rachel Maddow’s show on MSNBC, where Ms. Gillibrand was a guest. Ms. Maddow opened the interview by dissecting Ms. Gillibrand’s shifting stances.
“Tell me about that transformation,” Ms. Maddow pointedly began her questioning.
“I understand her policy positions have evolved,” said Rick Mullin, 65, who attended the house party with Ms. Gillibrand in Sioux City. He was sympathetic. His positions have shifted, too. “Not as much as hers have,” he added.
Ms. Gillibrand remains widely unknown. People quietly asked each other who the blonde woman with the media entourage was at a coffee shop in Des Moines. And as she entered the state Capitol for the Women’s March speech, the security guard asked her, “So when are you running for president?”
“Right now!” she replied.B:
