Sen. Amy Klobuchar announces presidential campaign at Boom Island Park

CNN poll Most Democrats say bring on Biden

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.

Her kick-off rally looked like a scene out of the Disney film Frozen, with a snow-covered crowd gathered near the banks of an icy river.

She began her career as a corporate lawyer in her home state before being elected prosecutor for Hennepin County (which includes Minneapolis). She doesn't have a signature issue, the way Warren does.

She has also avoided supporting Bernie Sanders' single-payer healthcare bill, known commonly as Medicare for All, preferring to back a "sensible transition" instead.

She discussed her family history when she questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his hearing before the Senate past year, asking him whether he had ever blacked out after drinking.

She told CNN in late December 2018 that it was a "big decision" because there are "a lot of different people running".

Moreover, they have won 11 of the games and have drawn the remaining one against Burnley, which saw them come back from 0-2 down. Di Maria , booed every time he was on the ball, fired the first warning shot in the sixth minute.

In a speech that was nearly a point-by-point rejection of the president's policies and the country's toxic divides, she told supporters, "We are exhausted of the shutdowns and the showdowns, of the gridlock and the grandstanding". Today on this snowy island, we say enough is enough.

Campaign theme. In a word, pragmatism.

Klobuchar responded with some snark of her own: "Science is on my side, @realDonaldTrump". Amy Klobuchar's announcement that she's running for president.

Not everyone at the event was supportive of a Klobuchar presidential run. She's consistently pulled 100 percent ratings from the Human Rights Campaign. Her name has been floated in the past as a potential Supreme Court nominee and as a possible vice presidential pick for Clinton in 2016.

In an age when political views are condensed into 280 characters and measured in retweets, Ms Klobuchar's reputation for working away in the background could help her stand out. "One, her moderate stance on the issues will contrast greatly with the ultra-liberal Democratic candidates already in the race".

Former Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson, a Republican, once called Klobuchar "the great avoider". She has drawn support from voters in urban, suburban and rural areas, including in dozens of counties Trump won in 2016.

The initiative builds on previous White House efforts to help women internationally. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, started under President George W.

"I saw the tweet about Amy Klobuchar and calling her a snow woman for standing there braving the snowfall", Navarro said during a Sunday panel for CNN.

Her emphasis on a being a pragmatist willing to work with the GOP is exactly what voters exhausted of gridlock want to hear.

Cons to her candidacy.

Klobuchar is entering the contest as the Democratic Party's progressive wing is fighting for dominance. "He saved money in a coffee can in the basement to send my dad to college", she said.

In fact, one of her first challenges will be to define herself to the voting public which knows little about her. In recent days, however, some media outlets have reported on complaints from former staff members of angry outbursts and high staff turnover, a contrast to her publicly low-key and good-humored image entirely in keeping with "Minnesota Nice". As Eric Sorensen reports, the race is drawing a wide range of candidates and could make history for diversity.

Sen. Warren's expected 2020 bid banking on populist appeal
The expected launch will test whether the controversy is simply a Washington obsession or a substantive threat to her candidacy. She pointedly said of President Donald Trump , "The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken".
