There’s still time to nominate a “moderate” progressive as the Democratic nominee for President in the November 2020 election. Virginians have their chance to vote in the Democratic Primary on March 3. and since we don’t register by Party here, Independents have a great chance to participate in the nominating process as well.
Republicans who do not want to re-elect Donald Trump as President for the next four years would be smart, also, to come out and choose one of the Democratic Party nominees that they would feel most comfortable with as our President.
Amy will make a great President, bringing decency, competence and know-how back to the White House. She also is known for her bipartisanship, passing 100 bills as the lead Democrat over her – year career in the U.S. Senate. Working Mother Magazine named her “Best in Congress” for her efforts on behalf of working families and she’s a big proponent for substance abuse treatment, mental health services and long-term care solutions.
Transportation is another area of strength for Sen. Klobuchar. She knows first hand the urgency of repairing aging infrastructure having pushed through the rebuild of the Minneapolis bridge that collapsed several years ago due to neglect. She’s a big advocate for comprehensive transportation improvements including public transit. Her committee assignments in Washington have provided her in-depth knowledge of how to strengthen the economy, including in rural communities.
Amy also supports universal health care for all Americans, and she believes the quickest way to get there is through a public option that expands Medicare or Medicaid. She supports changes to the Affordable Care Act to help bring down costs to consumers and to improve delivery of services. She’s been fighting her whole life to bring down the cost of prescription drugs.
