Amy Klobuchar Looked Like A Snowman Today

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

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) announced her 2020 presidential candidacy over the weekend, using an icy blizzard as her backdrop until almost all her supporters were seemingly up to their knees in snow.

An exuberant crowd gathered on a cold and snowy day at a park along the Mississippi River waterfront with the city's skyline in the background. The campaign has provided cookies and 100 gallons each of hot chocolate and apple cider.

"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. "The way Sen. Klobuchar behaves in private with her staff is very different than when she's in the public eye, and that kind of cruelty shouldn't be acceptable for anyone".

Two of her opponents, Kirsten Gillibrand and Ms Warren, have openly called for the agency to be dismantled, while Ms Harris has said it needs to be "critically re-examined".

Marilyn Bessler said that Klobuchar's measured approach to finding compromise in politics is an asset that will help her stand out in an increasingly polarizing political climate, and they tout her record of keeping political discourse positive.

But her legislative record has drawn criticism from both the GOP and some fellow Democrats. It wouldn't be a shock if she has a good showing in the neighbouring-state Iowa caucuses and rides that momentum deep into the primary season.

Still, in 2018, she participated in bipartisan talks on a broad immigration compromise that would have bolstered border security and shielded young undocumented immigrants from deportation, although it ultimately was defeated in the Senate. Amy Klobuchar announcing her presidential bid for 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, February 10, 2019.

But Navarro gave Trump's attack short shrift, not least because of his own past struggles with inclement weather.

The three-term senator is set to discuss her plans at an afternoon event in Minneapolis. The margin was much larger Hillary Clinton's 1.5-point victory in Minnesota's presidential race in 2016. She is proud of them and the work they have done for Minnesota'.

The backdrop for her rally was the Interstate 35 bridge over the Mississippi. Huffington Post and BuzzFeed News were among the outlets that quoted former aides who weren't identified.

William Brueske, who moved to Mankato a year ago, said he tends to lean Republican, but has voted for Democrats in the past.

Klobuchar's behavior, which has been an open secret on Capitol Hill for years, led former Sen.

"I saw the tweet about Amy Klobuchar and calling her a snow woman for standing there braving the snowfall". She has never lost an election to date and is considered the most popular statewide official in Minnesota, a traditionally Democratic state. She's also seen as a rising star in the Democratic National Party.

A troubling sign, however, is that Klobuchar's office has one of the highest rates of staff turnover in the Senate. Her questions earned her recognition in Democratic circles for working to advance the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault.

Some Democratic operatives in early states believe the reports could undercut her public image. "If you are ready to elect a new president, I can tell you, she knows how to win".

"We're starting in Wisconsin because as we remember, there wasn't a lot of campaigning in Wisconsin in 2016", Klobuchar told reporters.

"She'd left hints in different interviews about deciding to run", said Lori Peters of North Mankato.

"When you have a parent who's an alcoholic, you're pretty careful about drinking", she said. She began her career as a corporate lawyer in her home state before being elected prosecutor for Hennepin County (which includes Minneapolis). During her time there she led a crackdown on gun crimes and secured almost 300 homicide convictions. A year ago she easily won a third term.

Klobuchar in 2015 appeared to borrow from the playbook of presidential hopefuls by producing an autobiography. Kavanaugh later apologised to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.
