US Democrat Amy Klobuchar Announces Presidential Bid

Race for the White House: Midwestern senator throws her hat in the ring

"She is proud of them and the work they have done for Minnesota", a campaign spokesperson said. "Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures", he said, repeating his unfounded suggestions that cold weather is evidence against climate change.

The 58-year-old said it is time to get "dark money" out of politics, strengthen voting rights, combat climate change, and to enact universal background checks for all gun purchases.

"While Democrats are clearly hoping for a "moderate" candidate, Klobuchar comes with serious flaws - the first being her lack of integrity when it comes to her word", Carnahan said in an emailed statement.

She launched her campaign on Sunday in her home state of Minnesota.

Ms Klobuchar called on people to join her "homegrown" campaign, saying, "I don't have a political machine".

Ms. Klobuchar has focussed her efforts on issues like antitrust oversight, agriculture and voter security. Klobuchar won re-election a year ago with over 60 percent of the vote in a state that has voted Democratic at the presidential level in every election since 1976 but only narrowly went for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. "We have a lot to get done in the days, weeks, and months ahead".

Klobuchar, with snow piling up around her and blanketing the thousands of people before her, on Sunday cast herself as the product of working-class roots who can win bipartisan support and help Democrats win back the Midwestern cities and towns that drifted toward Trump in 2016, CNN reported.

Clay County was a microcosm of Minnesota as a whole, where Klobuchar won 51 of the state's 87 counties.

Senate panel approves Trump attorney general nominee
Barr is one of the most well qualified individuals in the country to serve as Attorney General as he has held the job in the past. The Republican president has repeatedly criticised the investigation as a "witch-hunt" and denies any collusion with Moscow.

Klobuchar, 58, becomes the fifth USA senator and the fourth female member in the chamber announcing a bid for the presidency.

The couple have been cheerleaders for Klobuchar over the years at parades and various conventions; they carried a banner in support of their daughter-in-law at Minnesota State University's Homecoming Parade in downtown Mankato last year. "Obviously we're very proud, as we are of all of our sons and daughter-in-laws". She began her career in private practice before being elected narrowly as Hennepin County attorney in 1998.

Klobuchar has developed a reputation for reaching across the aisle and enjoys a 57 percent approval rating in Minnesota, based on a survey conducted by American Public Media in 2018.

Klobuchar says: "I'm going to be there a lot".

Across town at the Fillin' Station Coffee House, Lynn Rozen of Mankato also describes Klobuchar as relatable and honest.

"Our nation must be governed not from chaos but from opportunity", Klobuchar said.

"And I think that she's a smart, articulate, inspiring woman", Pecinovsky said. "I found her to be incredibly fair and extremely effective". She's citing the need to "heal the heart of our democracy and renew our commitment to the common good. With today's announcement, Klobuchar has shown her true colors to the people of Minnesota as another out-of-touch Democrat looking to push the failed policies of her party onto the American people". According to FiveThirtyEight's congressional vote tracker, Klobuchar voted with Trump's interests 31% of the time since he took office. "But we usually just try to concentrate on the family". "I am running for every parent who wants a better world for their kid", Klobuchar said in her speech.
