Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is among ten Democratic hopefuls squaring off tonight (8-10pm CT) in Miami for the first presidential debate, with ten more contenders on stage tomorrow night (Thurs). Hamline University political analyst David Schultz says Klobuchar — who’s at one- to two-percent in national polls — “has to hit the proverbial home run and have a breakout moment” tonight:

“What happens after Wednesday night — Thursday night for lots of candidates — those who don’t do well, the ability to raise money starts to go down dramatically.”

Schultz notes Klobuchar will be fighting for face time with nine other candidates tonight — plus she won’t have a chance to spar with Democratic frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, who are up against eight other Democrats tomorrow night.
