Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said Sunday she is happy to be among the top six Democratic presidential candidates in a recent poll of Iowa voters.

Klobuchar said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” she’s happy with the poll, which shows her receiving 2 percent support, noting she’s ahead of 18 other candidates and even with former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

“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. 

Former Vice President Joe Biden led the field in the same poll with 24 percent of the vote. 

Second place was a statistical tie between Sen. Bernie Sanders(I-Vt.) at 16 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) at 15 percent and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 14 percent.
