Amy Klobuchar announces first 4 campaign stops

She'll start off in Wisconsin this Saturday.
Publish date:

After dealing with media commitments on the East Coast and some crucial hearings and votes in the Senate, Amy Klobuchar will be hitting the campaign trail this weekend.

On Thursday night, Klobuchar's campaign announced she will be attending 4 events this weekend, starting – as promised – in Wisconsin before heading to the crucial primary state of Iowa.

She will be stopping in Eau Claire, Wisconsin at 10:45 a.m. Saturday, where she'll talk with local Democrats at the SHIFT Cyclery & Coffee Bar.

From there she'll head to Mason City, Iowa, where she will be attending a meet and greet hosted by the Cerro Gordo County Democrats at Lorados around 4 p.m.

She'll stay in Iowa on Saturday night before heading to the Marion County Soup Luncheon in Knoxville, Iowa, at 1 p.m. Sunday.

She will then join the Monroe County Democrats for their Annual Spaghetti Dinner at 5 p.m., so she can expect to be pretty full come the end of Sunday.

Klobuchar is hoping her Midwestern roots will get her off to a strong start in the presidential primary process, with Iowa, as usual, the first on the primary calendar.

But she is taking a detour on the way with the stop in Wisconsin, a move she announced last weekend while taking a not-so-subtle dig at Hillary Clinton, who failed to visit the state during the 2016 presidential elections and ultimately lost the state to Donald Trump.
