Amy Klobuchar is the first woman elected to represent Minnesota in the United States Senate.
She has built a reputation of putting partisanship aside to help strengthen the economy and support families, workers and businesses. In 2016 an analysis by Medill News Service ranked her first among all 100 senators in sponsoring or co-sponsoring bills that were enacted into law in the 114th Congress. Senator Klobuchar led the effort to pass landmark pieces of legislation to end human trafficking and to combat the opioid epidemic. She fought to pass the most significant consumer product safety legislation in a generation, keeping foreign toxic products off our shores and out of our stores, and pushed the cell phone companies to enact more consumer-friendly policies. Additionally, her efforts to protect consumers have resulted in the largest furniture recall in American history and millions of defective airbags being taken off the road.
