The haul came after the Minnesota Democrat tangled with six of her 2020 competitors in Manchester on Friday night at the last debate before Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire. 

Friday night’s financial boost for Klobuchar comes after what appears to be a fifth-place showing in Iowa’s caucuses and amid polling that shows her in a similar position ahead of the Granite State’s primary.

Klobuchar hit Buttigieg over his past stances on “Medicare for All,” noting that he supported the plan before reversing to a proposal that expands on the Affordable Care Act. She also praised Sens.

"There was a lot of courage that you saw from only a few people. There was courage from Doug Jones, our friend of Alabama who took that tough vote. There was courage from Mitt Romney, who took a very, very difficult vote," she said to applause.

"But what you said, Pete, when you were campaigning through Iowa as three of us were jurors in that impeachment hearing, you said that it was exhausting to watch and that you wanted to turn the channel and watch cartoons," she said. "It is easy to go after Washington because that's a popular thing to do."
