Another female Democratic Senator is running for President of the United States. The third-term senior senator from the crucial Midwestern state of Minnesota, Amy Klobuchar, announced her candidacy amid a report of her being a tough, and sometimes cruel, boss for whom to work. Nonetheless, Klobuchar was listed as a rising Democratic star nine years ago, and she rose to the top of the potential 2020 candidates after her rigorous questioning of then-judge Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

Klobuchar was formerly a corporate lawyer in Minneapolis, the twin city of the capital of Minnesota, Saint Paul.

Senator Klobuchar’s ideology aligns with much of the typical American liberal. She supports the rights of women and LGBTQ people, supported Obamacare, and opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Klobuchar is also one of the most effective senators in the country. As of December 2018, GovTrack reported that Klobuchar has co-sponsored or sponsored 118 pieces of legislation that would later become law.

It is hard to imagine Minnesota not being a battleground state. Although he ultimately failed to receive the state’s ten electoral votes in 2016, President Trump did fairly well in the formerly solid blue state. Klobuchar’s voting record reflects the people of Minnesota’s choices, siding with the President on roughly 33% of bills, according to her voting record.
