Mixed Reactions to Klobuchar's Bid for President

February 11, 2019 05:51 PM

(ABC 6 News) -- Temperatures in the teens, snow falling heavily in Minneapolis: This is where U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar became the fifth woman to announce her candidacy for President of the United States.

Klobuchar already made history in 2006, when she became the first woman elected in the U.S. Senate from Minnesota. Now she's looking to become the first female president.

Locally, there are supporters.

Still, a few didn't want to go on camera, one person voicing concerns about Klobuchar's plans to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, and another saying she wouldn't vote for Klobuchar based on accusations from former staff members that Klobuchar had mistreated them.

And people seem to be much more vocal online.

The story on our Facebook page blew up: The majority of comments are *not* in support of Klobuchar.

One person says he's "excited to see her campaign fail;" another saying "my vote isn't going to be for her ... can't stand her two face politics."

And one man asked, "Who? What has she done for Minnesota except get re-elected?"

But for or against her, or even indifferent, Klobuchar is preparing for a multi-state tour, with stops in Wisconsin and Iowa.
