RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Senator Amy Klobuchar campaigned in Richmond Saturday morning in an effort to sway Virginia voters ahead of Super Tuesday primaries.
“I know you and I will fight for you,” Klobuchar said in front of her crowd. “That is the sacred trust between the president and the people of this country.”
500-plus people lined up this morning at the Altria Theatre, to hear her message. Klobuchar said she is going to unite the country if elected.
“We live in a country of shared dreams,” Klobuchar said. “No matter where you come from, and Virginia knows this well, no matter who you know or the color of your skin or how much money you have.. you can make it in the United States.”
Klobuchar touched on subjects such as climate change, healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions and the task of taking down Trump. She claims she is behind in most polls, but said she has gotten this far for a reason.
“It’s no surprise to me, that I still despite every odds maker against me from the beginning, that I am still in this race,” Klobuchar said. “I believe so strongly that we better not lose this opportunity.”
Three Virginia lawmakers recently endorsed Senator Amy Klobuchar for President:
- Senator Creigh Deeds (VA-25)
- Senator Janet Howell (VA-32)
- Delegate David Reid (VA-32)
Sen. Klobuchar will also campaign in Norfolk on Saturday.
