White House hopeful Sen.

The endorsers include state representatives, Democratic officials and activists across 10 counties in the Granite State. 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.

The endorsements come as Klobuchar works to break out of the 2020 primary field’s middle tier less than two months before voters start heading to the polls. While she has polled high enough to consistently appear at the Democratic primary debates, she still finds herself behind several other top-tier contenders in national and early state surveys. 

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