Amy Klobuchar is a Democrat that has been a U.S. Senator from Minnesota since 2007. From January 1999 through January 2007, just before assuming her seat in the Senate, Klobuchar was the County Attorney of Hennepin County. Also, as of January 2017, Klobuchar is also the Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee. Klobuchar officially announced her run for the 2020 Presidential Election on February 10, 2019, and she ended her campaign on March 2, 2020.
Klobuchar has a strong support system of voters that consistently help her rank in the polls and earn donations. As a midwesterner and a modern liberal Democrat, Klobuchar attracts voters from a range of different sectors. A list of some of her supporters is below:
Amy Klobuchar has a very good chance of being selected as the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate, especially if Joe Biden wins the nomination as expected. While Kamala Harris is the presumptive favorite for VP, Klobuchar actually makes the most sense for Biden, as she could help him swing a few rust belt states with her Midwestern sensibilities and northern school marm vibe.

**Odds pulled from Bovada Sportsbook.
Amy Klobuchar ran a surprisingly strong campaign at first, and she did reasonably well in the New Hampshire primary. However, there was no saving Amy in the long run, and she dropped out after a poor showing in the SC primary. In the archival odds below, she was expected to drop out sooner than Tom Steyer, who actually bailed first.
According to sportsbooks right before her departure, Amy Klobuchar was not likely to make it to the 2020 election to face Donald Trump. Klobuchar was not a popular candidate outside of Minnesota, proven by the fact that some sportsbooks gave her similar odds to Michelle Obama or other figures not even running for President. Nevertheless, many critics claimed her stern personality and character traits provided her the robust experience to challenge big names like Trump. That has proven false.
Klobuchar was not a popular candidate running for President in 2020. Odds consistently had her in the back of the pack, on par with long shots like Tom Steyer and Marianne Williamson. Now her odds have fallen to zero.
Nope, she’s gone! After dropping out of the DNC race, all offshore political sportsbooks have taken her off the boards.
The odds consistently told us that Klobuchar was a long shot candidate holding onto a tiny sliver of hope entering the 2020 election. With such low odds of becoming the Democratic nominee and even lower odds to beat Trump in the election, Klobuchar had a long, tough road ahead of her. She got some name recognition at the end of the day, but that’s about it.
Klobuchar was a smaller name within the Democratic Party, consistently appearing in the bottom of political polls. On prediction markets, particularly at Predictwise, Klobuchar consistently ranked in the party’s bottom half. At her best, Klobuchar had a 1% chance of winning the Democratic nomination in 2020 per these markets. Even that was too high.
As expected – on way or another – the upcoming November elections are dealing with another wildcard in terms of what bettors can and should
Amy Klobuchar ran her 2020 campaign on policy agendas like lowering Drug Costs, using Digital Distribution, expanding saving accounts to help those save for Education, expanding rural broadband and tougher Privacy Laws, committing the US to the Paris Agreement, reducing the influence of money in politics, automatically registering eligible voters, overhauling Election security, and providing Universal Healthcare. While she does not exactly agree or at least publicly comment on more progressive policies presented by other Democratic Presidential candidates, she is sure on her agenda.
According to Klobuchar’s previous voting record, the Minnesota Senator supports civil rights equality for LGBT+, supports Women’s Rights, Pro-labor and Anti-corporation, and tough on crime. She has also voted to support early childhood education opportunities, and the investment toward homegrown, renewable energy sources. Recently, Amy Klobuchar voted Yes on the Natural Resources Management Act, the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019, the First Step Act of 2018, the Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018, and the Patient Right to Know Drug Prices Act.
Klobuchar worked as a corporate lawyer, a partner at Minnesota law firms of Dorsey & Whitney, and Gray, Plant, Mooty, and later as a prosecutor. In 1994, Klobuchar started her run at a political career by running for the Hennepin Cunty Attorney position. However, she dropped out of the race June that year to support Michael Freeman for re-election.
In 1998, Freeman did not seek re-election allowing Klobuchar to run fully, where she won the seat as County Attorney and was re-elected in 2002. From 2002-2003, Klobuchar was the President of the Minnesota County Attorneys Association. In 2006, Klobuchar ran for the US Senate seat and won becoming the first woman to be elected U.S. Senator from Minnesota – She had held this position since and is now a senior Senator.
In 2019, Klobuchar announced her run for the Presidential candidacy in 2020. Amy Klobuchar’s 2020 campaign website had little information regarding her running policies, further leading to her non-viability with voters.
Klobuchar attended the Jonathan Edwards College, a residential college at Yale University and earned a Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude in Political Science in 1982. After she graduated from Yale, Klobuchar attended the University of Chicago Law School and earned a JD (Juris Doctor) in 1985.
While there is little public note on Klobuchar’s charitable, nonprofit, or volunteer work. However, she was honored by Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota for her commitment to the nonprofit sector through a bi-partisan energy efficiency bill she introduced in 2016 which worked to help nonprofits save money through energy efficiency.
Klobuchar has no available voting record detailing any stance for or against casinos and gambling. However, through looking at her industry contributors in 2017-2018, Klobuchar received $28,985 in total. This amount was split in two: Individual contributors gave her $26,985, and PACs gave her $2,000.
Nothing, now. Earlier, Bovada listed her chances of earning the Democratic nomination at +4000, which would have paid out $4000 with a $100 bet. With the same bet on her presidential odds at +10000, Klobuchar winning would have equated to $10,000. Again, though, anyone who wagered on her lost.
