Amy Klobuchar has spent her life helping people and standing up for what's right. She's an innovative leader who has championed new ideas that have produced results. As Hennepin County's chief prosecutor, she manages an office of nearly 400 employees, including 160 lawyers, and currently serves more than 1.1 million residents â€” almost a quarter of the state's population.
She grew up in the Twin Cities suburb of Plymouth, attended public schools, and was the valedictorian of her high school class. Amy went on to graduate magna cum laude from Yale University and the University of Chicago Law School.
Amy was first elected as Hennepin County Attorney in 1998. During her tenure in office, serious crime in Hennepin County has fallen significantly due to the work of her office, police departments, local businesses, and people in the community. In 2002, Amy was re-elected to a second, four-year term without any opposition.
