Leading from the Heartland

Meet Amy Klobuchar

Senator Amy Klobuchar is the granddaughter of an iron ore miner, the daughter of a newspaperman and a union teacher, the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from the state of Minnesota and candidate for President of the United States. Amy is running to bring people together, take on the major issues facing our country and to get things done. From leading the fight to win a 48-hour hospital stay for new moms and their babies to passing landmark legislation to end human trafficking, combat the opioid epidemic, protect consumer rights and strengthen our election security, Amy has the track record needed to build a better future for our country. That’s how she’s passed more than 100 bills into law as lead Democrat and was named the most effective Democratic Senator.

America needs a candidate who can beat Donald Trump and get our country back on the path to progress with an ambitious, optimistic economic agenda. Amy has won every race, in every place, everywhere, every time — including places President Trump won by more than 20 points. And that’s why she released a plan outlining the concrete steps she will take in her first 100 days as president to improve health care, combat climate change, pursue economic justice and shared prosperity, and build a stronger democracy and safer world.

As president, Amy will look people in the eye, tell them the truth and govern with integrity. If you think it’s time America had a president who does the same, join Amy to stand up to Donald Trump and say that people matter.

On the Issues

For too long, leaders in Washington have sat on the sidelines while others try to figure out what to do about the changing economy and its impact on our lives -- what to do about the disruptive nature of new technologies, income inequality, the political and geographic divides, the changing climate and the tumult in our world.

Our nation must be governed not from chaos, but from opportunity. We must bridge the river of our divides and get to a higher plane in our politics.

As your president, Amy will look you in the eye and tell you what she thinks. And no matter what, she’ll lead from the heart and get things done.
