MINNEAPOLIS – Amy Klobuchar, the third-century Minnesota senator, entered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination on Sunday, hoping that his moderate politics, the Midwestern roots and carefully cultivated bipartisanship history could appeal in the wide swat of voters at times.
Ms. Klobuchar, 58, is the fifth woman currently serving in Congress to declare her candidacy, joining a tight and diverse field of Democratic presidential hopefuls. In most top-tier candidates who owns from coastal states, Ms. Klobuchar believes her low-key brand of "Minnesota nice" politics can make her a compelling candidate, especially with Iowa voters submitting the first major vote and in states such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania who are releasing an election in 201

A politician who prides himself on being "disagreeing with no nonsense," Ms. Klobuchar came to victory in November, who beat his opponent to the Republic with a 60 percent vote in a state that Mr. Trump almost won in 2016.
Despite his friendly public person, he said poor boss. A survey by Senator LegiStorm's website from 2001 to 2016 found that his office had the highest turnover in the Senate. "I have a high expectation," she told The New York Times last year. A recent HuffPost article described him as a tough manager who lost some potential 2020 member of the campaign staff because of his reputation.
On Sunday, Ms. Klobuchar is ridiculed by communities around the country, "tired of the small and vicious nature of our politics."
"We're all tired of shutdowns and showdowns," he says, "the gridlock and the grandstanding . "
Ms. Klobuchar said on Sunday that he would identify the change in election laws, including a plan to automatically register people to vote when they became 18. He also promised to enter into a joint climate agreement, and to expand laws that protect privacy online.
While his approach could appeal to centrists and moderate Republicans in his home state, his breaks in liberal orthodoxy risk alienating the ascendant's progressive wing of his party. Ms Klobuchar said a more comprehensive measure of college accuracy, did not cover the Senate that Sen's "Medicare for all" law. Bernie Sanders and did not join the movement to revoke the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
Dealing with a relatively safe re-election, Ms. Klobuchar spent most of the midterms promoting other Democrats running for office in her home state. He made numerous visits to Iowa during his 12 years in office, most recently to push a message of "squid economy" to rural settlers and farmers, arguing that Democrats can not afford forget about the middle of the country.
"Minnesota matters, things in Wisconsin, Nebraska matters, Ohio issues – and, yes, Iowa things," he told the Iowa Farmers Union in in December.
Ms. Klobuchar believes that the state of his state of affairs in Iowa can give him the advantage of state caucuses, an important first test in the mainstream. He wants to joke that "he'll see Iowa from my balcony."
He grew up in Minneapolis suburbs as a schoolteacher's daughter and a columnist for The Minneapolis Star Tribune. After graduating from Yale and the University of Chicago law school, he returned to Minnesota to work as a corporate lawyer. The birth of her daughter, who was born under conditions requiring her to stay in the hospital, had fallen into her political activist. Ms. Klobuchar has pushed for the law that new mothers can guarantee a 48-hour hospital stay, a proposal that eventually became federal law. He was elected prosecutor for the state's most populous county in 1998 and became the first elected female senator from his state in 2006.
In the Senate, Klobuchar planted a man-bee farmer, not leading to the separating issues such as immigration and focusing instead of discarding the cost of drugs prescribed, sexual harassment and online privacy protection. A review in 2016 found that he had passed most of the Senate's laws.
Ms. Klobuchar was elevated to national fame during the Judicial Court Court hearing for Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, when he called on the nominee if he was drinking. "Have you ever been?" She returned, where she calmly responded, "I have no problem drinking, Judge." The exchange has become viral, in part because Ms. Klobuchar mentioned that her father fought with alcoholism, and led to a parody of "Saturday Night Live."
