See Klobuchar launch 2020 presidential bid in most Minnesota way imaginable

Amy Klobuchar's newly announced presidential campaign, however, could generate some heat in 2020.

She added, "I think taking on Amy Klobuchar, attacking her for standing in the middle of a snowfall in her home state, eh, might not be the hill he wants to die on, might not be the smartest line of attack for Trump".

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

But some former Klobuchar staffers, all of whom spoke to HuffPost on condition of anonymity, describe Klobuchar as habitually demeaning and prone to bursts of cruelty that make it hard to work in her office for long.

While numerous high-profile Democrats already in the race are in the progressive lane - liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren formally declared her candidacy Saturday - Klobuchar has quietly gained attention in Washington as a centrist. "It is time to organize, time to galvanize, time to take back our democracy". Her highest-profile moment was during the U.S. Supreme Court nomination hearing of Brett Kavanaugh, when she and Kavanaugh got into a brief exchange about excessive drinking.

House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler, also of NY , said Ms Omar's choice of words was "deeply disappointing and disturbing ". New Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar arrives before President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address.

Bill and Marilyn Bessler say one benefit that Klobuchar and husband John Bessler have moving towards an even busier year is mutual support for each other in spite of their hectic schedules.

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. That's ordinary people doing extraordinary things", she said in her prepared remarks. He later apologized to the senator, who has said her father was an alcoholic. This win helped burnish Klobuchar's credibility with rural and lean Republican voters and will likely be the backbone of her campaign.

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

Scott Herzog, a 50-year-old manufacturer from West St. Paul, said the same as he stood in front of the stage two hours before the event starts: "This is true Minnesota: Snow and Amy Klobuchar".

Several big Democratic guns have yet to commit, including former vice president Joe Biden and senators Bernie Sanders and Sherrod Brown.

Klobuchar, 58, is known as a straight-talking pragmatist willing to work with Republicans, making her one of the Senate's most productive members at passing legislation.

President Donald Trump appeared to have watched the speech, noting on Twitter that Klobuchar had talked about climate change. After living with the orange rage of Trump, Klobuchar's "Minnesota-nice" persona is a welcome relief. "People need to get out there and demonstrate true leadership potential".

University of Minnesota student Noelle Dyalsingh said she's looking for an inclusive candidate. "She's been a part of our family since she ran for Hennepin County Attorney; she's always tried to find common ground".

Klobuchar responded to questions about the reports Sunday.
