Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

After eight years as county attorney, Klobuchar ran for the Senate seat being vacated by first-term Democrat Mark Dayton, who later won election as governor.

She offers a steady, sensible political outlook that could attract the majority of Democratic voters who are more interested in electability than ideological purity.

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar (KLOH'-buh-shar) of Minnesota is set to join the 2020 presidential race later Sunday.

Klobuchar supporters are gathered around heat lamps and bonfires as they wait for the senator to speak.

"But that sense of community is fracturing across our nation right now, worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics".

She added: "So I think taking on Amy Klobuchar, attacking her for standing in the middle of a snowfall in her home state, eh, might not be the hill he wants to die on, might not be the smartest line of attack for Trump".

Though Klobuchar does not have the name recognition of some of her rivals for the nomination, she's well known within L.A. donor circles, having raised money for her Senate campaigns in the city and because of her position on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Minnesotans in the red counties and the blue counties and all the counties in between know that Amy, she shows up. We are all exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, the gridlock and the grandstanding".

Attendees for the most part said they back Klobuchar because they see her as a "centrist" who will work across the aisle. She has never lost an election to date and is considered the most popular statewide official in Minnesota, a traditionally Democratic state.

"We've got the opportunity to replace chaos with courage". That's community. That's a shared story. "He saved money in a coffee can in the basement to send my dad to college", she said. "For every senior who wants affordable prescription drugs". She supported the Green New Deal, a Democratic plan proposed this past week to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy. Some Republicans say Klobuchar is able to get things done because she pushes smaller issues.

However, her legislative record has drawn criticism from both the GOP and some fellow Democrats.

She went on, saying she's noticed him be careful about Sen.

Klobuchar, a lawyer and the former prosecutor in Minnesota's largest county, raised her national profile during a Senate Judiciary Committee a year ago for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school.

Klobuchar became the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Minnesota in 2016 and won 43 Minnesota counties that Trump had won two years earlier and 51 of 87 counties overall when she won reelection in 2018.

Unruffled, Klobuchar continued as Kavanaugh asked again. "I have I'd say high expectations for myself, I have high expectations for the people who work for me, but I have high expectations for this country". It also chronicled challenges including her father's struggle with alcoholism, a topic she touched on during Kavanaugh's Senate hearing, and her parents' divorce. "I was truly trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence".

Klobuchar campaigned with Democrats in Iowa last fall, and in December spoke to progressive farmers and activists about the importance of bridging the divide between urban and rural areas. "We must win. We have to win this next election and all Amy Klobuchar does is win".
