Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said Sunday that she is "still thinking about" running for president in 2020, but hasn't made up her mind.

"Right now, I am just still thinking about this, talking to people. I’m sorry to say I have no announcement for you on your show," she told ABC's George Stephanopoulos during an appearance on ABC's "This Week."

But even as she maintained that she hasn't decided whether to run, Klobuchar pitched herself as a candidate who could perform well in places that President TrumpDonald John TrumpHow to stand out in the crowd: Kirsten Gillibrand needs to find her niche Countdown clock is on for Mueller conclusions Omar: White supremacist attacks are rising because Trump publicly says 'Islam hates us' MORE won in 2016 in addition to getting things done in office.


“People are talking to me about this, I think in part because I’ve worked really hard to go not just where it’s comfortable, but where it’s uncomfortable and did well in a number of those places where Donald Trump won," she said.

“I’m also someone, for those that are exhausted with politics, that likes to get stuff done," she added. 

Klobuchar last month campaigned for a Democratic House candidate in Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register. The state is home to the Iowa caucuses, which are the first major nominating contest in presidential primaries.
