Klobuchar becomes the fifth US senator to announce her candidacy, and the fourth woman in the chamber. "I have neighbours. I have all of you".
Her campaign, however, ran into a speed bump even before she made her presidential announcement when HuffPost reported this week that Klobuchar had such a bad reputation over her treatment of staff that a number of potential staffers withdrew from consideration to manage her campaign because of it.
"Her moderation and common-sense approach appeals to Clay County voters", said DFL state Rep. Paul Marquart of Dilworth, who knows a thing or two about moderation and common sense.
Klobuchar, meanwhile, is not new to appearances on cable news or Sunday shows.
"I think we all have a side of ourselves that, if we were to be in the public eye, somebody would have something negative to say", said Mary Stanley, a Minnesota voter who said she's supported Klobuchar for years.

Referring to Offset and his rap group, Cardi added: 'I want to thank all the artists who took their time with my verses.
Klobuchar, a lawyer and the former prosecutor in Minnesota's largest county, raised her national profile during a Senate Judiciary Committee previous year for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school.
A young person holds a sign as Democratic Sen.
According to BBC news reports, Klobuchar, a former prosecutor, said she was running for "everyone who wanted their work recognized".
Former Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson, a Republican, once called Klobuchar "the great avoider".
Klobuchar said she also planned to make early stops in Wisconsin, before taking an apparent dig at Hillary Clinton, the Democrats' 2016 nominee who failed to visit the state during the general election.
Ariana Grande shares new ‘break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored’ video
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards are broadcasting live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8:00 p.m. Grande blasted the comments in a social media post , saying she could have prepared a performance overnight.
Klobuchar campaigned with Democrats in Iowa previous year, and in December spoke to progressive farmers and activists about the importance of bridging the divide between urban and rural areas. "Obviously we're very proud, as we are of all of our sons and daughter-in-laws".
She later ran for Hennepin County prosecuting attorney in 1998 and was re-elected in 2002. The stories also cited aides who said they didn't have that experience. Tradition is important to her, serving potica at her office in D.C.
"Let me be blunt: For too long leaders in Washington have sat on the sidelines while others try to figure out what to do about the changing economy and its impact on our lives, what to do about the disruptive nature of new technologies, income inequality, the political and geographic divides, the changing climate, the tumult in our world", she said.
It wouldn't be a shock if she has a good showing in the neighbouring-state Iowa caucuses and rides that momentum deep into the primary season. "That's ordinary people doing extraordinary things", she said in her prepared remarks. "I found her to be incredibly fair and extremely effective". This win helped burnish Klobuchar's credibility with rural and lean Republican voters and will likely be the backbone of her campaign. "I was leading the ticket, and I believe you need people that will go not just where it's comfortable, but where it's uncomfortable and be willing to work with other people that you don't always agree with for the betterment of this country". Klobuchar's announcement came a day after Sen. "It is time to organize, time to galvanize, time to take back our democracy". Politics, they say, is left at the door.
The "Sno-buchar" event had a festive family feel.
