Latest Democrat to Go After Trump in 2020: Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota

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

Klobuchar won re-election to her U.S Senate seat in the state of Minnesota for a third term on November 6.

With Sen. Amy Klobuchar's announcement yesterday that she'll seek her party's nomination for president, the pool of official Democratic contenders for 2020 now includes five senators.

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.

"Amy has always been very positive with her campaign ads, but we do worry about the negative things that may come up and all that", Marilyn Bessler said.

She added, "But that sense of community is fracturing across our nation right now, worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics".

Klobuchar joins the race as the only Midwesterner, with a Midwest strategy: Win back Midwest states that voted for President Trump.

Kyler Murray is picking football over baseball
Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played both football and baseball, but Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback. He ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history.

A crowd gathers at Boom Island Park to listen to Sen. She said all US homes should be connected to the Internet by 2022, endorsed universal health care, and said all people should need a background check before buying a gun.

Next week, Klobuchar will begin a multi-state tour with stops to Wisconsin and Iowa, according to a press release.

After living with the orange rage of Trump, Klobuchar's "Minnesota-nice" persona is a welcome relief.

For example, while she has publicly spoken out against President Trump's immigration and border policies, she has not voiced her support for the movement to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

As a resident of the West Mankato neighborhood where Tim Walz until recently lived along with State Rep. Jack Considine, Dave Brave Heart said there's been a great deal of speculation that Klobuchar would be announcing her candidacy.

Klobuchar raised her national profile during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings last fall for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom to recall troops from Mexico border
Brown also ordered that the guard members not enforce immigration laws or participate in the building of a border barrier. Gavin Newsom is ordering on Monday the removal of about 360 National Guard troops from the border with Mexico .

In the days leading up to her launch event, Klobuchar has faced allegations that she's mistreated staff in her Senate office for years. She declined to say whether she blamed her opponents for the negative headlines. "I am so excited, and she's a fabulous woman I can get behind".

"While Democrats are clearly hoping for a "moderate" candidate, Klobuchar comes with serious flaws - the first being her lack of integrity when it comes to her word", Carnahan said in an emailed statement.

She also used the speech to highlight her ability to work across the aisle with Republicans and her campaign priorities, including healthcare, an issue set to be heavily debated during her party's nominating race.

Klobuchar has a liberal voting record but is not considered as liberal as other candidates running for president or considering a 2020 run.

For her part, Klobuchar issued a stubborn response to the president's attack. Kavanaugh later apologized to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.

A supporter of liberal Bernie Sanders in the 2016 race, military veteran Gabbard was criticized for meeting with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad during that country's civil war, and for anti-gay positions that she has since retracted and apologized for.
