April 16th, 2019 by Jake Stofan

 

Minnesota Senator and Democratic Presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar met with Florida Democrats Tuesday afternoon to discuss key issues facing the state.

Senator Klobuchar says she discussed Amendment 4 implementation, healthcare, hurricane relief, Venezuela and climate change in during meeting.

When asked how she plans to take Florida in 2020 if she wins the Democratic nomination she pointed to her ability to commitment across the isle.

“I just think it’s a very important state in the General Election and if all we focus on in this very competitive primary, if all we’re focusing on is our own side then we can’t win. So you’ve got to reach out to independent voters and you have to reach out to moderate Republicans,” said Klobuchar. “That is how I’ve won in a purple state. There’s a reason the President was in Minnesota yesterday.”

Klobuchar is one of 18 Democrats running for President.

Other big name candidates include Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and former Texas Congressman Rep. Beto O’Rourke.
