Klobuchar to Meet With Jimmy Carter, Stacey Abrams

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., is swinging through Georgia on Friday as she campaigns for president and plans to meet with former President Jimmy Carter.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Klobuchar is slated to sit down with Carter, who lives in Plains, Georgia with his wife Rosalynn. Also on Klobuchar's schedule is a meeting with Stacey Abrams, a former state representative who lost in last year's Georgia gubernatorial election.

Friday evening, Klobuchar will attend a fundraiser for her campaign at the home of former U.S. Ambassador to Canada Gordon Giffin. Former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes is hosting the event.

Klobuchar declared her candidacy for president on Feb. 10, doing so via an outdoor speech during a snowstorm in Minneapolis. She is one of several Democrats who have already joined the race as the party seeks someone to challenge President Donald Trump in next year's election.

Carter, 94, lives in the same home where he lived before he served as president from 1977-1981.
