Amy Klobuchar Joins 2020 Dem Race

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (Ben Caxton) — Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota is joining the 2020 presidential race Sunday. She becomes the most prominent Midwestern candidate as the party tries to win back voters in a region that helped put Donald Trump in the White House. Klobuchar, who easily won a third term last year, has pointed to her broad appeal across Minnesota in promoting her 2020 run. She says she has drawn support from voters in urban, suburban and rural areas, including in dozens of counties Trump won in 2016 and hopes that success will translate to other Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, reliably Democratic in presidential races for decades until Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton. The list of Democrats already in the race features several better-known senators with the ability to raise huge amounts of money – Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.
