Democrat Sen. Amy Klobuchar Calls for Unity in Official Bid for Presidency

"She doesn't see a struggle and lose interest, she sees potential and she gets to work", Larson said. "We are all exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, the gridlock and the grandstanding". That's community. That's a shared story. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) because she held her announcement outdoors in the snow in her home state.

She said the country's "sense of community is fracturing" today, "worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics".

'I've heard people say she's tough to work for and I sometimes cringe when I hear it because I rarely hear that said about male bosses in Congress despite the fact that half of Congress is tough to work for, ' Tristan Brown, a former legislative aide who called Klobuchar 'probably the most brilliant, hardworking person I've had the privilege to work for, ' told the Huffington Post.

In a statement to ABC news, a campaign spokesperson said the senator is very fond of her staff.

Not everyone at the announcement was there to support Klobuchar.

In her speech, Klobuchar, 58, thanked Greater Minnesota and mentioned her Northland ties. "For every senior who wants affordable prescription drugs". She supports the "Green New Deal", a Democratic plan proposed this past week to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

She may not have the same level of name recognition as recent and future entrants into the race, but the three-term Minnesota senator has shown the ability to win votes in the kind of Midwestern battleground state that Donald Trump appealed to in 2016.

Klobuchar, now serving her third term in the Senate, has hinted for weeks that she would be entering the race, officially doing so after an onslaught of reports that her "Minnesota nice" public image does not align with how she treats staff members behind closed doors.

"I can push people".

The defence had argued Bissonnette should be eligible for parole after 25 years, but Huot said that would be too little. Alexandre Bissonnette, 29, pleaded guilty last March to six counts of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder.

Her kickoff event drew a healthy number of supporters even though it was just 14 degrees - chilly, but certainly not the coldest it's been in Minneapolis this season.

Some questioned whether former co-workers who thought she was abusive were falling for sexist stereotypes about female leaders with high standards. "We need someone who is focused on getting things done for this country".

Klobuchar, a lawyer and the former prosecutor in Minnesota's largest county, raised her national profile during a Senate Judiciary Committee previous year for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school.

Klobuchar has always been regarded as one of the U.S. Senate's most popular and effective members. He asked Klobuchar, "Have you?" Kavanaugh later apologised to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.

"When you have a parent who's an alcoholic, you're pretty careful about drinking", she said.

Among the other Midwestern lawmakers who could also seek the nomination are Sen.

Sen. Sherrod Brown of OH has been visiting early-voting states and is rumored to be considering a run and Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, established an exploratory committee last month.

Klobuchar campaigned with Democrats in Iowa a year ago, and in December spoke to progressive farmers and activists about the importance of bridging the divide between urban and rural areas. "That's the challenge Amy Klobuchar faces especially with Democratic activists in the primary", said Mary Anne Marsh, a Democratic strategist based in Boston.

"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.
