She said she hopes a successful presidential campaign would bring Midwestern states that Trump won in 2016 back into the Democrats' column in 2020.
The list of Democrats already in the race features several better-known senators with the ability to raise huge amounts of money. Klobuchar is the fourth Democratic senator to announce a bid for the White House, following Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of MA.
While most people outside her home state don't know Klobuchar, she's a credible candidate with as much a chance of winning as anyone. I think you need a certain kind of charisma to get people excited about voting for you; I don't feel like she's got that.
Due to freezing temperatures, Klobuchar's team handed out hot cocoa and apple cider to the audience. Supporters gathered around heat lamps and bonfires as they waited for the senator to speak. She attended the event to learn more about Klobuchar. Former vice president Joe Biden and Beto O'Rourke are other strong candidates who are likely to announce them running for presidency soon.
A former prosecutor, Klobuchar is looking to run on her legislative record in Congress, where she is known as a moderate who is willing to work with Republicans to achieve policy goals.
Klobuchar recently delivered a speech that was nearly a point-by-point rejection of the president's policies and of the country's toxic divides, she said, "We are exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, of the gridlock and the grandstanding". She recently pushed for Senate investigations into whether Facebook broke the law when it resisted oversight on how Russians used its platform to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
The I-35W Mississippi River bridge collapsed in August 2007, killing 13 people.
Can we just fast-forward forward a bit?!?! That's community. That's a shared story.
Her defenders say she is simply someone who demands excellence, and that the allegations against her would not be made against a man.

Banks started his career at Chesterfield, before moving to Leicester City , for whom he played 293 times. Growing up, one of the featured pieces of commentary I consistently heard was "that" save".
"We are all exhausted of the shutdowns and the putdowns, the gridlock and the grandstanding", Klobuchar said.
"Enough is enough. Our nation must be governed not from chaos but from opportunity".
"We know that [Klobuchar] is one of the most effective senators in the country", Smith said.
She has been measured in her criticism of Trump, attacking the effects of his trade tariffs on farmers but avoiding more explosive issues like immigration and gun control.
Klobuchar is expected to deliver a message of unity, vowing to fix a country she claims is fractured, according to excerpts of the senator's expected remarks given to ABC News. She's said her interest came from own experience, when as a new mother she was discharged after 24 hours because her insurance wouldn't cover more.
Klobuchar has always been regarded as one of the U.S. Senate's most popular and effective members. In response to Klobuchar's questioning Kavanaugh about whether he'd ever blacked out from drinking, he snidely responded, "Have you?"
Unruffled, Klobuchar continued as Kavanaugh asked again. Kavanaugh later apologized to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic. "I found her to be incredibly fair and extremely effective". "I was truly trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence". Booker is also spending the weekend in the Midwestern farm State.
Klobuchar won re-election in 2018 with 60% of the vote visiting all 87 Minnesota counties during the campaign, including 42 that went for Trump in 2016.
She later ran for Hennepin County prosecuting attorney in 1998 and was re-elected in 2002. She speaks for us.
