12 February, 2019, 22:01
Amy Klobuchar endured frigid temperatures to gather Sunday afternoon just outside downtown Minneapolis for her "big announcement": that she is the latest to enter the increasingly crowded Democratic field for president.
Minneapolis and the nearby Mississippi River will also play a central role in Klobuchar's speech, according to an adviser. Campaign aides handed out hot cider and cookies.
To win the democratic nomination, Klobuchar will need to do well in the Iowa caucus, said Larry Jacobs, a professor at the University Center for the Study of Politics and Governance. As a further potential candidate, Ex-Vice President Joe Biden, as well as independent Senator Bernie Sanders be traded. "She has an ability to cross the aisle, regardless of the political climate".
However, her legislative record has drawn criticism from both the GOP and some fellow Democrats. Klobuchar announced with a view on trump's style of government, it will be no "foreign policy by Tweet".
After her speech, Klobuchar dismissed reports last week that she mistreats her staff, saying she has high expectations for herself and people who work for her.
But her bipartisan approach may not stand her in such good stead in a party now dominated by the progressive left. "That's ordinary people doing extraordinary things", she said.
Former Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson, a Republican, once called Klobuchar "the great avoider". "We'd be well-served right now with someone with that kind of character and integrity".

After announcing her presidential bid, Klobuchar highlighted a number of issues her candidacy would focus on, including immigration, health care, education and climate change. She's also seen as a rising star in the Democratic National Party.
Klobuchar has a liberal voting record but is not considered as liberal as other candidates running for president or considering a 2020 run. She recently pushed for Senate investigations into whether Facebook broke the law when it resisted oversight on how Russians used its platform to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. She's talked about holding some low-paying jobs as she grew up, which led her to advocate a minimum wage increase.

She testified before the state legislature, urging the 48-hour standard. She said the lesson learned after the 2016 election was "we are not going to leave the Midwest behind". During her time there she led a crackdown on gun crimes and secured almost 300 homicide convictions.
"We're starting in Wisconsin because as we remember, there wasn't a lot of campaigning in Wisconsin in 2016", Klobuchar told reporters.
