“It’s going to be a little cold ... wear warm clothes, maybe have little heat warmers with you, but then you’ll find out my decision.”


The news comes hours after reports emerged that Klobuchar, who's been mulling a 2020 bid, will be headlining a local Democratic banquet in early caucus state Iowa on Feb. 21.

Klobuchar, who easily won a third term to the Senate last year, has generated recent buzz about a presidential bid. She'd be one of a few Democrats either running or considering running from the Midwest.

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has already announced a 2020 bid. Meanwhile, Sen.
