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.
