FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)  — Amy Klobuchar's presidential campaign filed paperwork to appear on Kentucky's May 19 Democratic presidential primary.

Klobuchar joins Pete Buttigeg, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang who have already filed in the Commonwealth.

“Our campaign is focused on building a strong grassroots operation that will serve as the foundation we need to win -- and win big -- in 2020,” said Amy For America Campaign Manager Justin Buoen. “Amy doesn’t want to be president for half of America, she wants to be president for all of America. That means bringing people together and getting things done. We look forward to continuing to share Amy’s unifying, optimistic message with Kentuckians as we build on our momentum heading into 2020.”

Klobuchar is currently serving as the senior U.S. Senator from Minnesota.
