OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar made a stop in Oklahoma City to give her pitch as to why she’s the best candidate to lead the country.
“I’ve been excited to meet her ever since I saw her announcement speech in that blizzard, I literally told my wife, she is tough as nails,” Sean Cummings said.
Klobuchar set herself apart with a distinct view on healthcare, saying she disagrees with Medicare for All and instead wants to expand on the Affordable Care Act.
She also says it’s an essential time to vote.
“We need you to vote, because you’ve got to vote like your life depends on it,” she said.
Klobuchar shared her plans for improving access to education and climate change.
People who attended the event say they care about a wide range of issues including healthcare, gun violence, and reuniting the country.
“I’m more about income equality, and I want to make sure everyone understands that sometimes Oklahoma is overlooked, especially by Democratic candidates, and I want to show my support so they’ll keep coming out here and understand we’re important too,” Jeff Sargent said.
President Donald Trump recently mocked Klobuchar at a rally in Colorado Springs, saying she “choked” at the most recent Democratic debate.
