Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) joked during a speech that when people actually meet with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), they don’t end up liking. Klobuchar made the remarks during a speech at the Center for American Progress on Monday.
“Every year, I visit all 87 counties in my state. This is something that I know Chuck Grassley does, and Chuck Schumer does it.” Klobuchar told the audience.
Klobuchar went on to joke about how when people actually meet with Schumer they tend not to like the Senator: “And Chuck Schumer actually gave me the idea to start doing it, although I later found out that after years of doing this, he had an election, and he won every county except [the] smallest one. And he went to his chief of staff and said, ‘I don’t understand it, that county’s so small. I practically met every person in that county,’ and the chief of staff said, ‘That was the problem, Senator, that was the problem.'”
