Her no-nonsense, moderate message helped her outpace previous front-runners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. But by effectively splitting the vote of moderate Democrats, Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg cleared a path for Bernie Sanders, an ardent progressive who identifies as a democratic socialist.

Amy Klobuchar cemented her place in the top tier of Democratic presidential candidates on Tuesday, finishing in the top three in the New Hampshire primary , according to NBC News. Klobuchar, who represents Minnesota, trailed only Sen. Bernie Sanders former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, according to results that trickled in throughout Tuesday night. She was set to score multiple delegates, while one-time front-runners former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren were set to be shut out , NBC News projected. In a state where voters pride themselves on their self-reliance and pragmatism, the Minnesota Democrat's moderate, no-nonsense message resonated with a wide swath of voters in the first popular ballot of the 2020 presidential calendar. Klobuchar is vying for the middle lane with Buttigieg, another moderate who also campaigns on a message of pragmatism and reaching across the aisle to work with Republicans. But by effectively splitting the vote of moderate Democrats, Klobuchar and Buttigieg cleared a path for Sanders, an ardent progressive who identifies as a democratic socialist, to come away with the biggest single slice of delegates out of New Hampshire. After finishing in fifth place in the Iowa caucuses earlier this month, Klobuchar's finish Tuesday also places her directly in the path of the two candidates who did better than she did in Iowa, only to finish behind her in New Hampshire: Warren and Biden. Neither Biden nor Warren were on pace to finish Tuesday with enough votes to secure any delegates. It was a surprisingly poor finish for Warren. But for Biden, it was a five alarm fire. Klobuchar's Tuesday finish followed her strongest debate performance so far in the campaign, last Friday in New Hampshire. There, Klobuchar landed rhetorical blows on Buttigieg over comments he made about how Americans wanted to "switch off" the Trump impeachment hearings and "watch cartoons." "Pete, as you were campaigning through Iowa, as three of us were jurors in that impeachment hearing, you said it was exhausting to watch and that you wanted to turn the channel and watch cartoons. It is easy to go after Washington because that's a popular thing to do," Klobuchar said. "It is much harder to lead and much harder to take those difficult positions." Unlike Biden and Warren, Klobuchar has yet to draw significant fire from Trump. This is in large part because Klobuchar has only begun to surge in the new year. CNBC reached out to the Trump campaign Tuesday to ask how they view a potential Trump-Klobuchar general election match-up. A spokesman did not immediately respond. As the Democratic primary moves to Nevada next for a caucus Feb. 22, Sanders is again expected to finish in the top spot, Read more: CNBC

Amy Klobuchar is 'troubled' by having democratic socialist Bernie Sanders possibly lead the presidential ticketThe Minnesota senator made the remarks a day before the New Hampshire Democratic primary election. Yes especially when Republicans are the ones pushing his numbers up Bernie isn't a communist. He is a multi-millionaire, who owns multiple homes and whittled his taxes down to 14%. Bernie is a capitalist and the product he sells is communism. Rightly worried. Bernie lacks nuanced solutions and divides us further.

Amy Klobuchar Is Pressed on ‘The View’ Over Her Record as a ProsecutorSunny Hostin pressed Senator Amy Klobuchar on her record as a county prosecutor, including the fact that the office did not prosecute any of the more than two dozen killings by police officers in the county in the 8 years Klobuchar was in charge I’m sure she’s shaking her head at that! Would like to know what those times were like back then. We are living in a totally different world today This is why a moderate struggles to win in the Democratic primaries.
Klobuchar Campaign Manager: Amy showed she 'can take on Donald Trump'Two years to the day since she announced her candidacy, voters are starting to take notice of Amy Klobuchar in a way they haven't before. Katy Tur catches up with her campaign manager Justin Buoen, to discuss the growing “Klobmentum” ahead of the New Hampshire Primary. KatyTurNBC Donald Trump does not debate. He just makes everything up KatyTurNBC Stop making stuff up. And FireChuckTodd KatyTurNBC Anyone can take on Trump and win 2020.... the real question is can he/she recovers enough damages (and improve our lives) just to have a second term? Because if he/she can’t, the chances of Trump returning on the ballot and win is extremely high.
Amy Klobuchar leads midnight vote in New HampshireMinnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar wins the most early votes in the New Hampshire Democratic primary after residents of three tiny townships cast the first ballots of the 2020 election at midnight Great Amy. She is Presidential in case someone is already thinking of of repeating old cliches! About 25 ppl in NH have now voted. Of those, 8 voted for Amy. CNN declares an early lead for Amy. I’m not even joking. That really just happened. It demonstrates the lack of star power among the Democratic candidates. There's no clear favorite, and the voters keep jumping from one candidate to the next. What a mess!
