The democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar will organize an event in Minnesota on Sunday to announce whether she will run for president, she said Tuesday evening, closer to a possible campaign launch.

Klobuchar told MSNBC that she will announce her decision in the Minneapolis Boom Island Park – "as in, Boom Island -" the microphone drops, "she said.

& # 39; It gets a bit cold, 20 degrees, & # 39; said Klobuchar, speaking on President Donald Trump's speech. "Wear warm clothes, maybe you know, you have small heaters with you, but then you discover my decision. & # 39;

Klobuchar posted on Twitter: "I make a big announcement on Sunday, Join me", users to RSVP on its website.

Klobuchar takes other steps that look like a presidential campaign: she is scheduled to travel to Iowa later this month, where she will head the Ankeny Area Democrats Winter Banquet, and her team will explore events elsewhere in the first caucus state that are likely to added to her itinerary, POLITICO reported earlier on Tuesday.

Klobuchar is a familiar face in Iowa, where she often campaigned for Democrats, including freshman Iowa Reps. Abby Finkenauer and Cindy Axne, who were elected last fall.

Those visits to her neighbor state have also translated into a head start in some early polls. In December, Klobuchar finished fourth in a crowded area and brought in 10 percent of the support in Iowa.

On MSNBC, Klobuchar criticized Trump's State of the Union speech. "We need someone in the White House who is a hero for their time," said Klobuchar.

Klobuchar, when she finally decides to take part in the race, will join a diverse and vast crowd of Democratic candidates fighting against Trump. The field already consists of five women – although Klobuchar is the only one in the Midwest – and two African-American senators and a gay man.

Klobuchar stressed that the final candidate president of her party should focus on voters from the Midwest, and "should give a good understanding of those voices that were not heard from the Midwest in 2016 and really from the center of the country. "
