Klobuchar will deliver her speech on Boom Island, a Minneapolis park adjacent to the Mississippi River. The river will serve as a central theme in her speech, according to excerpts obtained by CNN.
"The Mississippi River... all our rivers connect us... to one another. To our shared story," Klobuchar will say. "For that is how this country was founded, with patriots who saw more that united them than divided them."
The two-term senator will emphasize her Minnesota roots, CNN reported, and her belief in "hard work, telling it like it is, and getting things done."
"I'm asking you to join us on this campaign. It's a homegrown one. I don't have a political machine. I don't come from money," Klobuchar will say, according to prepared remarks. "But what I do have is this: I have grit. I have family. I have friends. I have neighbors. I have all of you who are willing to come out in the middle of the winter, all of you who took the time to watch us today, all of you who are willing to stand up and say people matter."
