Amy Klobuchar

MN (D)
Amy Klobuchar joined the Senate in 2006 as the first elected female senator from Minnesota. She cites her stong family ties and commitment to the state of Minnesota as her reason for serving.
How does Amy align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Senator Klobuchar is a member of the Commerce and Joint Economic Committees. She calls for the prioritization of STEM education, financing for small businesses, and an increase in the federal minimum wage.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Senator Klobuchar is a cosponsor of the DREAM Act and supports immigration reform. She has also worked to combat sex trafficking, support adoptive families, and protect senior citizens.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Before she was a politician, Senator Klobuchar helped pass one of the first state laws in the country guaranteeing 48-hour hospital stays for new mothers. She cites this experience as one of the reasons she went into government. Since then, she has remained committed to providing quality health care, lowering prescription drug prices, and investing in medical research.
