Klobuchar an­nounces her of­fi­cial bid for pres­i­dent

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Sun­day joined the grow­ing group of Democrats jostling to be pres­i­dent and po­si­tioned her­self as the most prom­i­nent Mid­west­ern can­di­date in the field.

“For ev­ery Amer­i­can, I’m run­ning for you,” the Min­nesota Demo­crat told an ex­u­ber­ant crowd at a park along the Mis­sis­sippi River.

Klobuchar did not ut­ter Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s name dur­ing her kick­off speech.

Trump re­sponded to Klobuchar’s an­nounce­ment with a tweet, say­ing she talked proudly “of fight­ing global warm­ing while stand­ing in a vir­tual bliz­zard of snow, ice and freez­ing tem­per­a­tures. Bad tim­ing.”
