Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar

Senator Amy Klobuchar was born May 25, 1960, in Plymouth, Minnesota. She graduated from Yale University and pursued her law degree from the University of Chicago Law School. While at Yale, Klobuchar was a member of the Yale College Democrats and the Feminist Caucus and served as an intern to then Vice President, Walter Mondale.

After graduating from law school, Klobuchar became a partner at law firms Dorsey & Whitney and Gray Plant Mooty. Klobuchar’s first step into politics came after the birth of her daughter, Abigail. Abigail was born with a serious condition, yet the hospital kicked them out of the hospital after 24 hours. She presented a bill to the Minnesota State Legislature guaranteeing new moms a 48-hour stay after giving birth. The bill was passed and later became federal law.

Klobuchar ran for Hennepin County Attorney in 1994 but dropped out to support Michael Freeman. She was later elected in 1998 and re-elected in 2002. She ran for Senate in 2006 and won becoming the first female U.S. Senator from Minnesota. She was re-elected in 2012 and 2018. At the end of the 114th Congress in 2016, she had passed more legislation than any other senator, and since 2018, she has sponsored or co-sponsored 111 pieces of legislation that became law.

Amy Klobuchar announced that she would run for president on February 10, 2019, in Minnesota during a blizzard.

Amy is married to John Bessler and has a daughter, Abigail.
