Amy Klobuchar Looked Like A Snowman Today

US Senator Amy Klobuchar entered the 2020 presidential race on Sunday, becoming the first moderate in an increasingly crowded field of Democrats vying to challenge Republican President Donald Trump.

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.

A former prosecutor and corporate attorney, Klobuchar joins a list of Democratic hopefuls that includes fellow Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

The Minnesota Democrat becomes the eighth major candidate - and the fifth Democratic senator - to announce a bid for president or the formation of an exploratory committee.

But her bipartisan approach may not stand her in such good stead in a party now dominated by the progressive left.

However, her legislative record has drawn criticism from both the GOP and some fellow Democrats. In her three elections to the U.S. Senate, she has won handily.

Her high ratings at home may demonstrate electability in a general election, an asset among a Democratic base eager to defeat Trump.

Klobuchar for years has had the highest staff turnover rates in the Senate. "She holds the power of the people of Minnesota".

New leak shows the final screen design of Galaxy S10
So far, Verizon and AT&T have confirmed that Samsung will release a 5G-capable smartphone in the first half of 2019. And honestly, those AI-fueled charges are probably more integral to your life than you might know.

The senator did not mention Trump by name, but alluded to him when she said the nation deserved better than "foreign policy by tweet". Huffington Post and BuzzFeed News were among the outlets that quoted former aides who weren't identified.

"This isn't a person who's seeking power", he said Sunday.

Klobuchar, 58, did not deny the accusations that she is a demanding and cruel boss, but instead said "I love our staff" after multiple former staffers painted her in a light far from her kind and laid-back persona. "In the Fight Club era of American politics will "Minnesota nice" work?" "We must win. We have to win this next election and all Amy Klobuchar does is win".

The backdrop for her rally was the Interstate 35 bridge over the Mississippi. She doesn't see a struggle and lose interest. Klobuchar was an early backer of Clinton, and served as a fundraiser and surrogate for the former secretary of state and first lady.

Klobuchar has been a member of the Senate Democratic leadership team since 2015, heading up the Democratic caucus's steering committee. Her questions earned her recognition in Democratic circles for working to advance the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault. He is a retired journalist and columnist for the Minneapolis StarTribune. She's talked about holding some low-paying jobs as she grew up, which led her to advocate a minimum wage increase. "If there are other pie cutters in the U.S. Senate, I'd like to meet them". "He never graduated from high school".

Many on the left also feel that her education reforms, which push for universities in the USA to be more affordable, do not go far enough. She testified before the state legislature, urging the 48-hour standard.

Klobuchar, 58, is hoping to belay her success in her home state - she easily won a third-term past year and enjoys broad support from voters in urban, suburban and rural areas, including in dozens of counties Trump won in 2016 - and her reputation as a straight-shooting pragmatist who gets legislation passed onto the national stage. Her book, "The Senator Next Door: A Memoir from the Heartland", detailed her rise from suburban granddaughter of immigrants to a national politician.
