Presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) plans to return to Michigan this week as part of a “Blue Wall” tour through Upper Midwest states.
Klobuchar is slated to hit Southeast Michigan, Politico first reported, which she last visited in July as part of the second round of Democratic debates in Detroit.
She’s scheduled to kick off the tour Tuesday in Philadelphia, home of the 2020 Workers Presidential Summit, followed by a stop in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. After visiting the Nicholson Terminal & Dock Co. on Thursday, Klobuchar will head to Milwaukee.
The Minnesota U.S. senator spoke at the National Organization of Black County Officials convention in Detroit in May. She returned to the city that month to keynote the Michigan Democratic Party Women’s Caucus luncheon and did a gun control event with U.S. Sen. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) in Ann Arbor.
While Michigan was a big destination for 2020 candidates prior to the debates, it’s been fairly quiet since. Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the Detroit Economic Club last month and will keynote the Michigan GOP biennial convention on Mackinac Island this weekend.
