'We Need to Stop Governing From Chaos': 2020 Presidential Candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar Joins 'Special Report'
2020 presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar joined "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier live in-studio Tuesday evening to discuss her campaign, her Democratic competition and her vision for America.
Klobuchar (D-Minn.) held a snowy rally in Boom Island, Minnesota, on Sunday to announce her presidential bid.
Klobuchar, a moderate who has served in the Senate since 2007, highlighted her ability to work across the aisle and her "grit" as Democrats try to win back voters in states like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
"I don’t have a political machine. I don’t come from money. But what I do have is this: I have grit," Klobuchar said in her speech. “I have family. I have friends. I have neighbors.”
“I have all of you who are willing to come out in the middle of the winter, all of you who took the time to watch us today, all of you who are willing to stand up and say, ‘People matter,’” she continued.
President Trump responded to Klobuchar's announcement on Twitter, quipping that she spoke about fighting global warming while standing in a "virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures."
"Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!" Trump wrote.
Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!

The Minnesota Democrat becomes the eighth major candidate -- and the fifth Democratic senator -- to announce a bid for president or the formation of an exploratory committee.
Klobuchar’s announcement came a day after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) officially launched her campaign.
