Potential presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar makes swing through Jacksonville

Jacksonville Democrats have an opportunity Wednesday to meet one of the many potential challengers to President Donald Trump.

Second-term U.S. Senator from Minnesota Amy Klobuchar will meet and greet Duval Democrats Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. at the party’s HQ on Bowden Road.

Klobuchar is likely here to test the waters in Northeast Florida ahead of a potential run. Senate colleague Cory Booker and former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden were in town earlier this month.

Klobuchar’s visit precedes a much higher profile visit to the state later Wednesday from yet another U.S. Senator (and a 2016 presidential candidate who could run again): Bernie Sanders, who will rally on behalf of the Andrew Gillum ticket.

The CNN power ranking of Democratic potential candidates has Klobuchar on the list, albeit at #9.

PredictIt.Org, which allows wagering on potential candidates, has Klobuchar firmly in the second tier of candidates, with Booker and yet another Senator, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand.
