November 10, 2019 - Klobuchar Says Women are Held to Higher Standards


In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Klobuchar is asked about comments she made to contrast her record of winning against a sparser record of success for Buttigieg. On CNN, she explains that she does believe Buttigieg is qualified but that she is the better candidate. She adds, “The last point I made in that article was that, of the women on the stage — I’m focusing here on my fellow women senators, Senator Harris, Senator Warren and myself — do I think that we would be standing on that stage if we had the experience that he had? No, I don’t. Maybe we’re held to a different standard.”
