Sen Klobuchar: Dems ‘Enthusiasm’ for Hillary ‘Generated’ by Desire to Stop Trump

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s enthusiasm is “generated by the fact that people are starting to see Donald Trump as a candidate.”

Discussing the large turnout in her home state Klobuchar said, “Minnesota wasn’t unexpected, just like Colorado or Vermont, Bernie’s home state. For me, the overwhelming number of people we had showing up bodes well for the general election. We had lines out to the end of the block. And so I just think there’s a lot of enthusiasm and I think some of that enthusiasm has been really generated by the fact that people are starting to see Donald Trump as a candidate, Andrea and a lot of Democrats across the country are saying this is really something that might happen and we have to have the strongest candidate turned out and we have to be a united party in the end.”

Throughout the early going of Clinton’s race with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for the Democratic nomination, critics have argued there is a lack of enthusiasm for the Clinton.
