Klobuchar Dismisses Presidential Run Speculation

November 11, 2016 01:01 PM

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar has dismissed speculation that she could be a potential presidential candidate in 2020.

Klobuchar, who spoke after an award ceremony for a Vietnam veteran Thursday, said she is focused on working across the aisle with a Republican Senate, House of Representatives and President-elect Donald Trump.


"We just got through a presidential race and I love my job and what I do now, and more than ever we need people in the Senate that can work across the aisle," she said.

The Democrat, who will be up for re-election in 2018, says she is disappointed Hillary Clinton was unable to shatter the glass ceiling.
