Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

Sen. Amy Klobuchar is Running in 2020 Presidential Election

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 awful acts of this administration".

Klobuchar made her announcement to a snow-covered crowd in Boom Island Park, Minnesota.

A Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll conducted by Selzer & Company in December found that Klobuchar was largely unfamiliar to likely Iowa caucus-goers, with 54 percent saying they didn't know enough about her to have an opinion, while 38 percent had a favorable opinion and 8 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

"Science is on my side, @realDonaldTrump", she tweeted.

"Amy's the only one that I really know, and people you know is what you're going to lean towards", Dave Brave Heart said. "I'm very positive that she will run and announce on Sunday".

"I love our staff. Look at this incredible event they put together [Sunday]", she said.

Klobuchar in 2015 appeared to borrow from the playbook of presidential hopefuls by producing an autobiography.

She told CNN in late December 2018 that it was a "big decision" because there are "a lot of different people running".

Police in Miami release surveillance video of a possible abduction
Miami police say a woman seen in a surveillance video being violently abduction has been found safe and in good condition. The video shows the man walking the woman outside with his arms wrapped around her neck and forcing her inside the auto .

In the tweet, Trump said the senator looked like a "Snowman (woman)" because she was standing in a "virtual blizzard". "My state, for instance, he nearly won in 2016, and we came roaring back in 2018". She sees potential, and she gets to work. I will focus on getting things done.

Ms Klobuchar said her success could translate to other Midwestern states such as MI and Wisconsin, reliably Democratic in presidential races for decades until Mr Trump's victory over Mrs Clinton.

In her remarks on Sunday, Klobuchar called for passing a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, restoring the Voting Rights Act, and passing legislation to automatically register people to vote when they turn 18.

The announcement came days after national media outlets published stories casting Klobuchar as a boss who was overly tough on staff members who shared their stories anonymously.

Klobuchar has drawn support from voters in urban, suburban and rural areas, including in dozens of counties Trump won in 2016.

An aggressive push in Iowa and a win there in 2008 helped catapult Barack Obama from underdog status to the Democratic nomination and eventual victory in that year's presidential election. The staffers were quoted anonymously and others, who were named, rose to defend Klobuchar. Klobuchar had worked with then Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare-for-All bill - instead pushing to lower the age where people are allowed to buy into the government health care program.

Klobuchar is entering the contest as the Democratic Party's progressive wing is fighting for dominance. According to FiveThirtyEight's congressional vote tracker, Klobuchar voted with Trump's interests 31% of the time since he took office.

Klobuchar's announcement came amid several news reports of high staff turnover in her Senate office with workers complaining of having to do personal chores, making it hard to hire high-level campaign strategists. "She's been a part of our family since she ran for Hennepin County Attorney; she's always tried to find common ground".

She won re-election in November by a resounding 24-point margin, carrying 1,200 precincts won by Trump in 2016.
