Democrat Amy Klobuchar announces presidential bid

Attendees for the most part said they back Klobuchar because they see her as a "centrist" who will work across the aisle.

Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota announces she is entering the race for president during a rally, February 10, 2019, at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"But that sense of community is fracturing across our nation right now, worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics". "We are all exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, the gridlock and the grandstanding". Our nation must be governed not from chaos but from an opportunity.

"She's a very popular U.S. Senator who's really effective at passing legislation", Olson said Sunday.

The 58-year-old enters an increasingly crowded field of Democrats competing to challenge President Donald Trump.

Senators Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Warren of MA have all thrown their hat in the race, as has congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. "I was truly trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence". Her voting record is that of a traditional Democrat: she's been a past supporter of middle class tax relief, Obamacare and a minimum wage hike.

Klobuchar, like many of her Democratic colleagues, called for unison and bipartisan approaches for federal governance in her speech.

The real reason Brad Pitt attended Jennifer Aniston's party
She shared her love for Aniston on Instagram today, January 11, with pictures of her, Kate Hudson and Aniston from the party. Jennifer did indeed look fire as she invited the elite of Hollywood to join her in celebrating her big birthday.

Ms Klobuchar has long prided herself in her bipartisanship; on being able to, as she wrote in her 2015 memoir, "disagree without being disagreeable".

A Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll conducted by Selzer & Company in December found that Klobuchar was largely unfamiliar to likely Iowa caucus-goers, with 54 percent saying they didn't know enough about her to have an opinion, while 38 percent had a favorable opinion and 8 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

The 44-year-old tech entrepreneur launched his campaign with little fanfare in late 2017, warning against the dangers that automation presents to United States workers.

She offers a steady, sensible political outlook that could attract the majority of Democratic voters who are more interested in electability than ideological purity. I think she definitely speaks for all of America. She supported the Green New Deal, a Democratic plan proposed this past week to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

But her roll-out, and her evocation of "Minnesota nice" - a stereotype that people from her home state are typically courteous and mild-mannered - hit a snag in recent days after reports that the senator has mistreated aides and asked staff to do personal chores, leading to high turnover. 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. In response to Klobuchar's questioning Kavanaugh about whether he'd ever blacked out from drinking, he snidely responded, "Have you?" Amy Klobuchar delivers remarks about Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh during a markup hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, September 28,2018. Several former aides have been quoted saying she is hard to work for, with bouts of "explosive rage" leading to exceptionally high staff turnover. Kavanaugh later apologised to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.

The couple have been cheerleaders for Klobuchar over the years at parades and various conventions; they carried a banner in support of their daughter-in-law at Minnesota State University's Homecoming Parade in downtown Mankato last year.
