The campaign also said it would activate its “network” of activists to host regular woman-to-woman phone banks and woman-to-woman organizing events to “engage their communities and communicate why Amy Klobuchar is best positioned to win big in 2020 and represent the needs of America’s women.” 

“Amy and our team are honored to welcome this accomplished and esteemed group of women to our campaign,” said Kelsi Browning, the Klobuchar campaign’s New Hampshire communications director.

Klobuchar’s standing is particularly low in New Hampshire, which will host the 2020 cycle’s second nominating contest.
