Klobuchar taking campaign to Midwest states that Trump won

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota says she’s taking her campaign for president — and her Midwest sensibilities — directly to parts of the region Donald Trump won and that her party wants to recapture in 2020.

Klobuchar announced her bid Sunday during a snowy rally along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, where temperatures were well below freezing.

The three-term senator says her broad appeal in Minnesota could translate to other Midwestern states such as Wisconsin and Michigan, which have been reliability Democratic for decades but backed Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Klobuchar said she would travel next weekend to Iowa, home to the nation’s first caucus. That trip will be followed by stops in Wisconsin, where Clinton was criticized in 2016 for not spending enough time.

Klobuchar says: “I’m going to be there a lot.”
