(NewsReady.com) – Support among minority groups is important for Democrats, though not all of the DNC presidential candidates have it. Pete Buttigieg has had a notoriously rocky relationship with the African-American voter block. However, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) seems to have less support among minorities than him.
During a recent interview on ABC, Klobuchar acknowledges this lack of minority support and is confident that she can overcome this obstacle. In her own words, “I need people to get to know me.”
Less than a week after her surprise third place finish in New Hampshire’s primary, Sen. Amy Klobuchar acknowledged she is struggling to build support with minority voters, saying people need "to get to know me." https://t.co/TwvBYINtGm pic.twitter.com/5CcMhAkmAP

Klobuchar gained a massive bump in national polling ever since the last DNC debate. Her campaign even received another $12 million within the week after it took place. That surge in popularity earned her third place in the New Hampshire primaries.
However, Nevada, the next state up for assigning delegates, is much more diverse than the 90% white population of New Hampshire, which could severely affect her overall performance there.
