Klobuchar launched her campaign from snowy Minneapolis on Sunday, where supporters stood out in frigid temperatures to cheer her announcement. The three-term senator laid out her vision for the country in a number of policy areas, including a pledge to root out corporate money in politics.
The Minnesota senator joins Harris in announcing a major fundraising haul in the days after her formal campaign launch.
Harris’s campaign said it took in $1.5 million within 24 hours of her campaign launch last month. The California Democrat’s campaign said that haul came from more than 38,000 individual donors, with the average donation hovering at $37.
