"Amy showed that the rule of law should still matter and, as she said, the Constitution does not say, 'We the ruling party, ' it says, "We the people'".
Klobuchar is seeking to cap an elective career that began in 1998 when she was elected to the first of two terms as top prosecuting attorney for Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis, before being elected the first woman senator ever from the state in 2006.
Klobuchar was the valedictorian of her public high school, and she earned a degree in political science from Yale University while spending a summer working as a construction worker, pounding stakes into the ground for the Minnesota Highway Department.
The third-term senator joins a crowded field of Democrats hoping to unseat President Donald Trump.
The sprawling field Klobuchar joined Sunday includes four Democratic senators - Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Cory Booker of New Jersey. According to FiveThirtyEight's congressional vote tracker, Klobuchar voted with Trump's interests 31% of the time since he took office.
Nine months younger than Gabbard is the South Bend, Indiana, mayor who joined the race unveiling a resolutely future-looking and optimistic message to counter Trump's darker vision. Ms. Klobuchar gained national attention in 2018 when she sparred with Brett Kavanaugh during Senate hearings on his Supreme Court nomination.
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.
Stormy Tuesday forecast for Midwestern Ontario
A coating of ice will be possible as well. "The hazardous conditions will impact the morning and evening commutes", the NWS said . If the wedge is very thin (to the right in this diagram), then the snowflakes don't melt completely, and just fall as wet snow.

"Some politicians, some pundits, they look at parts of our attractive country, our Midwest area, and they put us down, saying the best is behind us", she said. "He saved money in a coffee can in the basement to send my dad to college", she said.
"Not unusual. It's the right way to get here", said Dale Peterson, of Minneapolis.
"Amy's the only one that I really know, and people you know is what you're going to lean towards", Dave Brave Heart said. Klobuchar's reputation has also allegedly made it hard to recruit aides for her campaign. She's pointed to her broad appeal across Minnesota - where she's drawn support from voters in urban, suburban and rural areas, including in dozens of counties Trump won in 2016 - and says that success could translate to other Midwestern states such as MI and Wisconsin, reliably Democratic in presidential races for decades until Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton.
"Courage is about whether or not you're willing to stand next to someone you don't always agree with for the betterment of this country", she wrote. She then added, "Donald Trump would no sooner stand in the snow with his bone spurs getting sore because of the cold".
Ms Klobuchar said "I can be tough" and that "I can push people" and that she has staff who have worked for her for years and gone on to do other things.
Former Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson, a Republican, once called Klobuchar "the great avoider". Some progressives said she'd lacked the kind of fire and bold ideas needed to bring significant change and excite voters.
Sunday, Klobuchar seemed to relish the underdog role.
