See Klobuchar launch 2020 presidential bid in most Minnesota way imaginable

12 February 2019

"She holds the power of the people of Minnesota". That trip will be followed by stops in Wisconsin, where Clinton was criticized in 2016 for not spending enough time. "I am asking you to join this campaign". Klobuchar's actions allegedly date back at least a decade, well before she made her way to Washington. "I'm going to be there a lot".

"Senator Klobuchar loves her staff - they are the reason she has gotten to where she is today. He saved money in a coffee can in the basement to send my dad to college", she said. "We're hoping that this can still be a really positive thing for the sake of both Minnesota and the country and our family".

In a post on Twitter, Trump noted that Klobuchar focused part of her speech on tackling climate change while snow poured down at the outdoor event on Boom Island in Minneapolis.

"Some politicians, some pundits, they look at parts of our lovely country, our Midwest area, and they put us down, saying the best is behind us", she said. Trump often overlooks evidence of record global warming and conflates cold spells and other incidents of weather with climate, which is long-term. I don't have a political machine.

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

"We are exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, of the gridlock and the grandstanding". Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.), as well as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) and Obama-era Cabinet member Julián Castro.

Klobuchar will follow up her event in Minnesota with a trip to Iowa on February 21, where she will speak at the Ankeny Area Democrats Winter Banquet and Fundraiser.

"I saw the tweet about Amy Klobuchar and calling her a snow woman for standing there braving the snowfall". "I don't know that coming from Minnesota gives her any advantage with Iowans".

"We need to stand strong - and consistently - with our allies".

Klobuchar is entering a very crowded race for the Democratic nomination. Others said the reports were sexist. We need to be clear in our goal. The span was built after the previous bridge collapsed in 2007, killing 13 people. Klobuchar had worked with then Sen.

Can we just fast-forward forward a bit?!?! To our shared story.

A former prosecutor with an unpretentious demeanor, she referred again and again in her speech to her roots in a region that prides itself on an ethic of honesty and hard work.

Klobuchar celebrated a reelection victory in 2018, winning over 60 percent of the vote. Her voting record is that of a traditional Democrat: she's been a past supporter of middle class tax relief, Obamacare and a minimum wage hike.

Minnesota Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan said Klobuchar lacks the clout of political heavyweight senators like Paul Wellstone and Rudy Boschwitz and she raised questions about Klobuchar's stances on key issues. She will cast herself as the granddaughter of rural America, someone whose life was helped by a grandfather who saved money in a coffee can to send her father, who would go on to become a journalist, to college.

Klobuchar, retweeting the president's message, responded by saying: "Science is on my side". "Yes, I can push people, I know that".

"I've always been taught that your true character shows in how you treat those with less power than you, especially behind closed doors", a former staffer told BuzzFeed News. "She's vague and vacuous on all the big issues facing our country", Carnahan said.

She won praise for grilling Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and attorney general nominee William Barr during recent confirmation hearings.
