Klobuchar kicks off two-day swing through Iowa

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) will kick off a two-day swing through Iowa on Friday, stoking speculation that the two-term senator could be weighing a presidential bid.

Klobuchar is expected to appear at the annual "Wing Ding" fundraiser, which benefits North Iowa Democrats, on Friday night, according to the Quad City Times. She'll follow that appearance with a $50-per-head fundraiser at the home of Nan Riley, the widow of former state Rep. Tom Riley (D-Iowa). 

The pair of appearances is seen as early posturing for a possible 2016 presidential bid.
