Klobuchar campaigns in Reno

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) Democratic Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar held a town hall event in Reno at the Boys & Girls Club.

The Minnesota senator spoke to a crowd of more than a thousand.

Klobuchar shared with the audience about her upbringing and how she got to where she is today.

She touched on a variety of issues, answering questions that were submitted to her. Klobuchar spent time addressing the housing crisis that many Nevadans are facing.

"I have one of the most extensive housing plans out there just because in my other job I was in county office and I was able to see how important that is to so many other things and how you literally can trace back to people that have a hard time getting started if they don't have a place to live," she said.

Klobuchar also talked about healthcare, providing resources for veterans and combating climate change. She also said there needs to be healing done to move the country forward.

"That is what's missing right now in our country, this feeling of empathy. This idea that we have a president that can put himself in the shoes of other people," she said.
