Senator Amy Klobuchar enters 2020 presidential race

Washington - Senator Amy Klobuchar entered the 2020 US presidential race on Sunday, becoming the latest addition to a crowded field of Democrats that includes a historic number of women candidates.

Klobuchar, 58, a three-term senator from Minnesota, is seen as a moderate Democrat in contrast to more progressive candidates like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren.
"As your president I will look you in the eye, I will tell you what I think," Klobuchar said at a Minnesota rally as heavy snow caked her hair. "No matter what I'll lead from the heart."  
Her speech on Sunday called for ridding politics of big money, stricter gun controls and lowering health care costs.
Klobuchar has positioned herself as someone who can work across the aisle with Republicans. "Stop the fearmongering and stop the hate," Klobuchar said.
The senator's announcement comes days after multiple reports, citing former congressional staffers, said she ran a hostile work environment and regularly reduced employees to tears.
A campaign spokesperson said told Buzzfeed News that Klobuchar "loves her staff."
