Klobuchar Launches ‘Win Big’ Campaign: Campaign Update

(Bloomberg) -- Amy Klobuchar’s pitch in her presidential campaign was that she could win in places Democrats don’t always do well.

Now she’s taking that argument to congressional races -- and making a subtle case to be Joe Biden’s running mate.

The Minnesota senator has launched the Win Big Project to help Democratic candidates for House and Senate by raising their profile and directing money toward their campaigns.

The group has endorsed two Senate incumbents in New Hampshire and Minnesota and four Senate challengers: Mark Kelly in Arizona, Cal Cunningham in North Carolina, Jamie Harrison in South Carolina and Ben Ray Lujan in New Mexico.

Apart from their Senate races this cycle, Arizona and North Carolina are also considered battleground states in the presidential race.

Coming up:

Guam will hold caucuses and Kansas will hold a mail-in Democratic primary on May 2.
