The Demo­cratic 2020 pres­i­den­tial field just grew by one.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (DMinn.) an­nounced Sun­day she’s throw­ing her hat in the ring and aiming for the White House.

“To­day, on an is­land in the mid­dle of the mighty Mis­sis­sippi, in our na­tion’s heart­land, at a time when we must heal the heart of our democ­racy and re­new our com­mit­ment to the com­mon good, I stand be­fore you as the grand­daugh­ter of an iron-ore miner, as the daugh­ter of a teacher and a news­pa­per­man, as the first woman elected to the United States Sen­ate from the state of Min­nesota, to an­nounce my can­di­dacy for Pres­i­dent of the United States,” Klobuchar (inset) said in the mid­dle of a freez­ing, snowy field in Boom Is­land Park, Min­neapo­lis.
