Amy Klobuchar to announce 2020 decision on Sunday

She'll attend an event at Boom Island in Minneapolis.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar will end speculation over whether she will run for president by confirming she'll make an announcement in Minneapolis on Sunday.

Speculation ramped up on Tuesday as it emerged that a permit had been taken out with the city by one of her former staffers for an event at Boom Island Park this weekend.

Confirming that she would indeed be in Minneapolis, she told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow following President Trump's State of the Union speech that she would be making her announcement on Sunday.

"Sunday, come to Boom Island in Minneapolis...and you'll find out my decision," she said.

Let's face it, the very fact that an event is being held at a park in Minneapolis is a sure-sign that Minnesota's senior senator is running – it'd be pretty strange if she turned up and told everyone it's business as usual.

Another sign is that Sen. Klobuchar is heading to Iowa later this month, where Politico reports she will appear at the Ankeny Area Democrats Winter Banquet and Fundraiser.

The Democratic field for president is looking crowded, with Klobuchar's fellow Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand already announcing a run.
