Klobuchar rolls out ads in Super Tuesday states

Sen. Amy KlobucharAmy Klobuchar Klobuchar offers tribute to her father, who died Wednesday The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Cheney poised to be ousted; Biden to host big meeting Senate panel deadlocks in vote on sweeping elections bill MORE (D-Minn.) is rolling out ads in several Super Tuesday states as she works to gin up support ahead of the delegate-rich contests on March 3.

Klobuchar’s campaign is releasing the TV and digital ads in Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virginia, though it did not clarify how it will be splitting up the new seven-figure buy among the seven states. 

Two of the three ads that are being released contrast Klobuchar with President TrumpDonald TrumpWarren says Republican party 'eating itself and it is discovering that the meal is poisonous' More than 75 Asian, LGBTQ groups oppose anti-Asian crime bill McConnell says he's 'great admirer' of Liz Cheney but mum on her removal MORE, saying the Minnesota lawmaker is more in touch with the issues facing everyday Americans. 


“There is a complete lack of empathy in this guy in the White House right now, and I will bring that to you. If you have trouble stretching your paycheck to pay for that rent, I know you and I will fight for you. If you have trouble deciding if you’re going to pay for your child care or for your long-term care, I know you and I will fight for you,” Klobuchar says in one ad.

“We have a president who thinks everything is about him. His tweets, his golf courses, his ego. But I think the job is about you,” she adds in another.

The third ad Klobuchar is releasing casts her as a centrist who will not divert to a political extreme.

“If you feel stuck in the middle of the extremes in our politics and you are tired of the noise and the nonsense, you’ve got a home with me. I am someone that tells the truth. I don’t make promises that I can’t keep; I have people’s back, and I believe that to win you bring people with you and that is how you govern as well,” she says in the final ad.

The release of the ads comes less than two weeks before Super Tuesday, when over a third of all pledged delegates to the nominating convention will be allocated across 15 states and territories.
