"So I think you see a fluid race and yes, there are a lot of candidates and you're going to see that narrowed down over time," she said.

"I'm clearly on the debate stage and expect to be there in the fall. And I think that's going to give opportunity to voters in Iowa and all across the country to really narrow it down," Klobuchar said.

The senator added her strength is as a "proven progressive" – a lawmaker able to pass 100 bills as the lead Democrat.
