Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

Snow blowers cleared the stage multiple times before the event and volunteers were frantically working to shovel walkways for people.

Hot chocolate, biscuits and cider were also provided for the event on the bank of the MS river.

The campaign has provided cookies and 100 gallons each of hot chocolate and apple cider.

Most attendees were unphased by the weather - and gave Klobuchar credit for announcing outside in February.

The 69-year-old said it "won't be enough just to undo the bad acts of this administration". "She's good for Minnesota, and seeing people turn out (on such a snowy day) showcases people's excitement here". "Are they really excited?" But with a message of unity and Minnesota grit, Klobuchar said she was up to the task.

Klobuchar, 58, has never lost an election.

Klobuchar aimed to distinguish herself with a Midwestern earnestness, as she made clear in her speech. "I have neighbors. I have all of you who are willing to come out in the middle of the winter". "I have neighbours. I have all of you".

The newspaper says former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper is nearly certain to declare his candidacy, and three others - former vice president Joe Biden, Montana Governor Steve Bullock, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders - are listed as likely to run. Klobuchar may be a productive senator, but she hasn't been at the forefront of the red-meat issues that hardcore party members want to hear about.

Why she's running (in her own words).

Tiger found in vacant Houston home
After a neighbor contacted 311 anonymously, police and BARC were alerted to a report of a tiger inside a southeast Houston home. Some tigers are smuggled into the USA from Mexico, and there are small pockets of breeding facilities across the country.

President Donald Trump appeared to have watched the speech, noting on Twitter that Klobuchar had talked about climate change. "My state, for instance, he nearly won in 2016, and we came roaring back in 2018. I don't feel like she's the kind of person that's going to get people super excited at a rally". The intended takeaway of its role as the emotional heart of her speech: Klobuchar is someone who will get things done.

This means nearly nothing in terms of the Minnesota senator's presidential prospects - she must first navigate the brutal months-long nomination process against a large field of flame-throwing liberals with greater appeal to the base of the Democratic Party, and if given the choice between Klobuchar and Trump, rural voters might just choose Trump again - but Klobuchar's persona of a low-key, pragmatic politician resonates.

LGBTQ record. Klobuchar has been a solid supporter of LGBTQ rights in the Senate. Rural voters overwhelmed those in the San Francisco-like liberal bastion of Moorhead, in fact, pushing Trump to a 2-point advantage in the county.

Klobuchar initiated the campaign by singing the national anthem.

Although she is somewhat of an unknown nationally, recent polling in Iowa, the first caucus state, has found that far more likely caucus-goers view her favorably than not.

Her emphasis on a being a pragmatist willing to work with the GOP is exactly what voters exhausted of gridlock want to hear. BuzzFeed, meanwhile, reported that Klobuchar "ran a workplace controlled by fear, anger, and shame, according to interviews with eight former staffers, one that many employees found intolerably cruel". Bernie Sanders' Medicare-for-All bill - instead pushing to lower the age where people are allowed to buy into the government health care program.

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.

Former Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson, a Republican, once called Klobuchar "the great avoider". "She's been a part of our family since she ran for Hennepin County Attorney; she's always tried to find common ground".
