Sen. Klobuchar: "I Don't Think Anyone Can Quite Match Hillary Clinton's Record On Women's Rights"


BOB SCHIEFFER, FACE THE NATION: Let me just ask you about this. You heard Rand Paul say that here she is holding herself out to be a champion of women and she is taking money in her foundation from Saudi Arabia.

SEN. AMY KLOBUCHAR (D-MN): Well, I think that those contributions to the foundation are open for everyone to look at. And I am sure that for, you know, years now, we have seen Hillary Clinton being attacked for various things.

But I think the focus is, today, she is going to start being able to make here case to the people of this country, in small groups, in a warm setting, where she excels, because I saw her as a senator and one to one on those bread-and-butter issues -- and that's all I hear about in Minnesota.

The farm bill, those guys that just announced on the Republican side, they didn't even vote for it. She's going to go to Iowa and say -- talk about rural policy, things that matter to the people of this country.

SCHIEFFER: Well, what if they say out there you ought to give those contributions back, Senator, because it leaves sort of an air of hypocrisy about this whole thing? What would you tell her to answer?

KLOBUCHAR: Well, I think she has answered this. She has talked about that this was a foundation. I think you have seen other foundations take similar contributions.

But the point of is this. I don't think anyone can quite match her record for promoting women's rights all across the world. And if they want to go on that plane and have that argument, I will say she wins.
