Jan. 14 debate

Amy Klobuchar is 'very proud to know' Kansas governor despite not remembering her name

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) might want that one back.

In response to a question about the electability of a woman presidential candidate during Tuesday's Democratic debate, Klobuchar was noting a few women who defeated their male opponents in gubernatorial races around the country. One shoutout was saved for the governor of Kansas, who the senator said she was "proud to know." She doesn't seem to know her that well, though, since Klobuchar couldn't quite remember Gov. Laura Kelly's name.

Kansas' primary is a ways off, however, so if Klobuchar is still in the running by then, there's a chance no one will remember.
