SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – Senator and presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar made a stop in Sioux City Saturday, kicking off a caucus training event.
Klobuchar spoke before the event at the Sioux City Public Library about her campaign for president.
She also talked about how important caucusing is. Klobuchar said it isn’t something people should be scared to do.
“I think it is incredibly important because it is the way politics go in Iowa,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar, (D) Minnesota. “And people have to understand the caucuses and not be afraid at showing up at them. And the whole idea is to make sure that people who are new understand how it works so they will come. You want to welcome people to the caucuses.”
Klobuchar also spoke of her 100 day plan and the key issues she would tackle if elected president.
“The top issues will be less expensive health care, including less expensive pharmaceutical prices and that will be one of my major issues that I address when I get,” said Klobuchar. “Immigration reform, something I think is really really important in this area. That we have a path to citizenship and it will actually be good for the economy in Iowa because you don’t have enough workers in your factories, in your fields and some of your hospitals and nursing homes. And climate change. Those are three of my major issues in the first year.”
This is Klobuchar’s 23rd visit to Iowa after announcing her candidacy for president.
