Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., is telling supporters her presidential campaign has “exceeded expectations” and she plans to carry on, even as she trailed far behind several rivals in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses.
The Minnesota senator returned to her home state Saturday following a morning event in Las Vegas. Speaking to volunteers Klobuchar said “a lot of people didn’t even think I would still be standing at this point.”
Klobuchar finished in fifth place in the kickoff Iowa caucuses before a strong debate performance helped lift her to third place in New Hampshire.
She will campaign Sunday in Fargo, North Dakota, before holding events in Arkansas and Oklahoma, both states that will vote in the March 3 Super Tuesday contests. She will head Monday to South Carolina, which holds its primary Saturday and where she will participate in a Tuesday debate.
