Klobuchar makes Iowa detour

Published 9:03 am Friday, August 16, 2013

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is making her way to Iowa as the keynote speaker at a local Democratic Party gathering.

Friday night’s appearance is the type that can signal interest in a national run. Iowa, after all, traditionally hosts the opening caucuses in presidential election years. But Klobuchar has given few indications that she’s looking to move up the ladder.

Klobuchar is the featured guest at the North Iowa Wing Ding fundraiser in Clear Lake.

Klobuchar won a second term last fall in convincing fashion. She was the keynote speaker at a summer event in Ohio and will headline a Democratic Party dinner in Pennsylvania at the end of September.
