Klobuchar has made similar comments before, saying last week, “I’m a mom, I can do two things at once,” even as it remains unclear how long the impeachment trial will last. Klobuchar noted her campaign network in the Hawkeye State, saying she would handle some campaign events remotely.
“When I can go campaign in those early states, including Nevada and South Carolina, I will,” she said. “But when I have to be there [the Senate], I will,” she said.
