Candidate Klobuchar wants to expand broadband

MPR reports on the Democratic debate Tuesday night…

In her opening statement, Amy Klobuchar said, “Let’s get real.”

“You’re going to hear a lot of promises up here. But I’m going to tell you this: Yes, I have bold ideas, but they are grounded in reality,” the Minnesota senator and Democratic presidential candidate said.

She mentions her interest in expanding rural broadband…

Calling it a “bread and butter” issue important to unions, Klobuchar promoted her trillion-dollar plan to improve roads, bridges and schools. She also wants to expand access to broadband internet, in another bid to win over Trump voters in rural areas.
