With snow falling steadily and the temperature well below freezing, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said she's joining the group of Democrats running for president and would take her campaign -- and her Midwest sensibilities -- directly to parts of the region Donald Trump won and that her party wants to recapture in 2020 .Klobuchar, who easily won a third-term last year, is the most prominent candidate from the Midwest to enter the race.The list of Democrats already in the race features several better-known senators with the ability to raise huge amounts of money -- Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Cory Booker of New Jersey, who welcomed Klobuchar to the race during a campaign stop in South Carolina.Klobuchar had worked with then Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., to help fund the new bridge and get it completed at a faster-than-usual pace.Some Republicans say Klobuchar is able to get things done because she pushes smaller issues.When Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh whether he ever had had so much to drink that he didn't remember what happened, he turned the question around.Kavanaugh later apologized to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.
