Letter to the editor: Vote for Klobuchar

Vote for Klobuchar

As a moderate, independent, Christian voter, I would like to encourage others like me to vote for Amy Klobuchar for president in our upcoming Colorado primary. Thanks to a change in legislation, even though I am a registered independent, I can vote in the primaries. As a Catholic Christian, my church encourages us to consider only pro-life candidates, but the term pro-life extends beyond a stance on abortion. It also refers to protecting and making life more bearable for vulnerable populations like the disabled, the elderly, children ex utero, the working poor, the mentally ill, immigrants and refugees among others. By extension, we are also talking about the environment, since a polluted environment will harm all forms of life.

I believe that Amy Klobuchar can lead our country in a more “pro-life” direction than the current administration. She has advocated for all the aforementioned groups. She ranks fifth in the Senate for working in a bipartisan capacity to pass laws even though she is in the minority party. The four senators who are ahead of her for passing legislation are all currently Republicans. The last time someone accomplished this feat was Sen. John McCain in 1994. There are no other Democratic candidates who have demonstrated the same capacity to work across party lines on the national level and to heal the partisan nature that currently characterizes our country. Amy unites!
