(ABC 6 News) -- Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has support across the state border heading into the final national democratic presidential debate Tuesday night in Des Moines.
Klobuchar’s visit to Iowa is not her first rodeo in the first in the nation caucus state.
"And that's why she went all over Iowa, so she could listen to people and let them tell her what they needed,” chair of Klobuchar’s Iowa campaign, Dr. Andy McGuire.
In addition to snagging the most endorsements from Iowa political leaders than any other candidate, the voters of Klobuchar's neighboring state have grown to know her through her visits to all of Iowa’s 99 counties – another accomplishment her running mates don't have to boast.
"She's not been an unfamiliar face in Iowa over the last several years. She’s been here pretty consistently and it's showing because she’s galvanized the necessary support. She's got a ton of support from local elected officials and state representatives, and ultimately I think that will bode really well come the caucus,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey told ABC 6 News.
Frey is also crossing state lines to support his fellow Minnesotan politician at Tuesday night's debate.
"Amy is known as the senator next door, and in my case, she is quite literally like the senator next door in that she lives only a few blocks away from me,” said Frey.
As the caucus quickly approaches, supporters say a win could be in the books for Senator Klobuchar.
"If you look at history, she's exactly where she needs to be. She's rising right now and this is the time you rise because otherwise, you become the target,” McGuire said.
"She's passed more bills than any other senator in the entire United States and that's a big deal because we're not electing a president just to be somebody, we're electing a president that's going to get things done and Amy has proven time and time again that she has that ability,” said Frey.
