2020 Spotlight: Amy Klobuchar

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has bet on pragmatism helping her win the presidency since launching her bid nearly a year ago. The three-term senator positioned herself as a unifier: “In our nation’s heartland at a time when we must heal the heart of our democracy…I stand before you…as the first woman elected to the US Senate from Minnesota to announce my candidacy for president,” Klobuchar told supporters. Polling behind more well-known candidates including former Vice President Biden and Senators Sanders and Warren, Klobuchar's campaign has been plagued by stories of her allegedly mistreating her staff. This did not stop the New York Times' editorial board from endorsing her alongside Warren, calling Klobuchar "a standard-bearer for the Democratic center." Get to know the candidate, her stance on the issues and more.
