High profile, and seeking third term


October 17, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Amy Klobuchar took to the floor of the U.S. Senate in early October to deliver a speech about bipartisan opioid legislation. On the same day the Senate was engulfed in partisan rage over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, she repeatedly emphasized her collaboration with Republican colleagues.

"Senator Graham and I have been trying to pass this for a long period of time, and I am glad this is finally getting done," Klobuchar said of a measure to crack down on synthetic opioids. Just hours earlier, that same colleague — Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — had gone on Fox News and demanded that Klobuchar "apologize for being part of a smear campaign" against Kavanaugh.
