The Day - - FRONT PAGE -

Min­neapo­lis — Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Min­nesota an­nounced Sun­day that she will run for pres­i­dent in 2020, putting a prag­matic Mid­west­erner tout­ing a mes­sage of com­pe­tence and met­tle into the bur­geon­ing field of Demo­cratic can­di­dates.

Klobuchar held her an­nounce­ment rally at a park on the banks of the Mis­sis­sippi River, near the site of the 2007 col­lapse of the In­ter­state 35W bridge, in which 13 people were killed and scores in­jured.

The bridge was quickly re­built in 2008, af­ter politi­cians and of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing the se­na­tor, came to­gether to ex­pe­dite the con­struc­tion process. The in­tended take­away of its role as the emo­tional heart of her speech: Klobuchar is some­one who will get things done.
