Sen. Amy Klobuchar said she would be in Washington, D.C., and off the presidential campaign trail in the event that the Senate stays in session for an impeachment trial in the coming months.
“I have a constitutional duty to take part in that trial. That’s what you do when you’re a U.S. senator and such an important case comes to be for you,” Ms. Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“We will be there in Washington, if that is the schedule. We really don’t have a choice,” the senator said.
She also said she can “do two things at once,” saying there are “many ways to reach out to people.”
Ms. Klobuchar is one of six sitting U.S. senators still in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. The others are Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado, Cory A. Booker of New Jersey, Kamala D. Harris of California, Bernard Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
