Sen. Klobuchar is leading her campaign with a focus on truth and governing with integrity. Health care is a main focus of her campaign, as well as her participation in the 116th Congress: she’s introduced 11 of the 30 health care bills in Senate this term. Klobuchar promotes a public option for health care, with expansion to Medicare and Medicaid, but she does not support Medicare for All.
Out of $17,389,552 that Klobuchar has raised so far in the 2020 elections:
- $400,776 has been linked to the Health sector
- $135,556 has been linked to health professionals
- $114,998 has been linked to hospitals/nursing homes
- Medtronic Inc is one of her biggest contributors, donating $37,674
Sen. Klobuchar has fought for better and more affordable health care in the Senate. Following her own personal experience with the birth of her daughter, Klobuchar became the leading advocate behind a law guaranteeing 48-hour hospital stays for new moms and their babies.
Klobuchar, along with a bipartisan group of three other senators, introduced and passed the landmark federal blueprint bill on combating the opioid epidemic.
Of the bills that Klobuchar introduced since her tenure began in 2007, 100 have been passed into law.
