Give Klobuchar another look before caucus

I will caucus for 3-term U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota for President. She is a centrist Democrat who focuses on practical, bipartisan solutions. She does not make wild promises. The most recent Gallup Poll in Iowa shows her surging with a substantial and growing increase. Her popularity polls at 70% in Minnesota. She won all the districts in her state that Trump won. A recent MINNESOTA STAR poll shows her beating Trump by 15 points, more than any other candidate. In the Senate, she has passed 101 bills into law as lead Democrat. These laws include measures to combat the opioid epidemic, protect consumer rights, and beef up election security.

She has specified the steps she will take in her first 100 days as president to improve health care, reduce gun violence, combat climate change, and address the needs of the 10,000 Americans turning 65 each, including the Alzheimer’s crisis. (Her dad currently suffers the disease.)

Unlike other candidates, she does not make wild promises. She proposes realistic solutions that can be achieved. Her moderate, pragmatic decision-making and calming demeanor will serve our nation well during crises. Unlike the three candidates in their 70s, she is young enough at 59 to avoid the inherent risks of a presidency extending into advanced old age. She can draw votes from independents and dissatisfied Trump voters. She can bring America back together again. One people, one nation, one prosperity with social and economic justice for all!
