“So 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 newspaper man, 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”

“That sense of community is fracturing across our nation right now, worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics, We are all tired of the shutdowns and the showdowns, the gridlock and the grandstanding. Our nation must be governed not from chaos but from opportunity. Not by wallowing over what's wrong, but by marching inexorably toward what's right. And it has to start with all of us.”

Amy Klobuchar

“I’m sorry if it still snows in the world, but the point is that we know climate change is happening, Just this last year it was one of the fourth hottest years in the history of the world. That’s what’s happening right now. We see this Greenland ice sheet melting. Look at those wildfires in Colorado and California, where you [have had] a dad trying to get through a fire trying to calm his kid down in a car. That’s what’s happening right now in this country. So that’s why I think we cannot ignore it.”

“I love our staff — look at this incredible event they put together, And, yes, I can be tough, and, yes, I can push people, I know that. But in the end, there are so many great stories of our staff that have been with me for years and have gone on to do incredible things. And I have, I’d say, high expectations for myself. I have high expectations for the people that work for me, but I have high expectations for this country. And that’s what we need. We need someone who is focused on getting things done for the country.”

“She starts out, perhaps, with a better understanding of Midwestern voters, but I think she faces the same hurdles every one of them face, which is: Are Iowans going to find them either the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump or the candidate that most aligns with their ideologies and issues? I don't know that coming from Minnesota gives her any advantage with Iowans.”

“I saw the tweet about Amy Klobuchar and calling her a snow woman for standing there braving the snowfall. It made me chuckle, frankly, and roll my eyes, This is a guy who skipped a visit to a U.S. cemetery in France of U.S. veterans because he, poor baby, was afraid to get his little hair wet.”
