Klobuchar says her campaign is also adding staff in early voting states like South Carolina, Nevada, and New Hampshire.  Klobuchar said it was important for Democrats to win not only the Presidency but in federal, state and local offices as well.  She noted that Iowa Democratics were working hard to try and take back the statehouse from dominant Republicans.   Around 175 people attended Klobuchar’s town hall meeting at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux City.
