Amy Klobuchar announces presidential bid with 'heartland' message

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

Amy Klobuchar's announcement that she's running for president.

Klobuchar is known for putting partisanship aside to pass legislation, something that has earned her a devoted following in Minnesota, and something American voters regularly tell pollsters they want.

Her defenders say she is simply someone who demands excellence, and that the allegations against her would not be made against a man.

At the United States presidential election in the coming year, always want to compete more Democrats against the Republican incumbent, Donald Trump.

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, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Cory Booker of New Jersey, who welcomed Klobuchar to the race during a campaign stop in SC. According to FiveThirtyEight's congressional vote tracker, Klobuchar voted with Trump's interests 31% of the time since he took office. Her first appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" was a televised debate against her GOP opponent during the 2006 U.S. Senate campaign.

Klobuchar, who gained national attention after speaking at the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last fall, has served in the Senate since 2007.

Not everyone at the event was supportive of a Klobuchar presidential run.

While she did not mention President Donald Trump by name, she said the country is exhausted of what she called "foreign policy by tweet" and said Americans are "worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics. I am so excited, and she's a fabulous woman I can get behind". "Not by wallowing over what's wrong, but my marching inexorably toward what's right". I will tell you what I think. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) officially launched her presidential campaign.

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.

Even as the influence of social media and other information sources grows, the Sunday shows and cable networks remain essential for reaching insiders and political junkies who can make or break nascent presidential campaigns. "You've got other candidates that are going to have far more money and staffing". Former vice president Joe Biden and Beto O'Rourke are other strong candidates who are likely to announce them running for presidency soon.

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

She could have held this thing indoors, but Minnesota Sen. Recently, she pushed for Senate investigations into whether Facebook Inc. broke the law when it resisted oversight on how Russians used its platform to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

Clay County was a microcosm of Minnesota as a whole, where Klobuchar won 51 of the state's 87 counties. On-air references to merely discussing a potential run with her family got picked up by several news outlets in late 2018.

Before she was a senator, she was the Hennepin County Attorney for eight years.

Sunday, Klobuchar seemed to relish the underdog role.
