Klobuchar draws crowds in New Hampshire as she hopes for a surge in Tuesday’s primary – CNNPolitics

Exeter, New Hampshire (CNN)Sen. Amy Klobuchar had a request of the overflow crowd gathered to see her on the eve of the New Hampshire primary: Surprise the country on Tuesday.

“So, as you probably heard, we’re on a bit of a surge,” she said. “To think this all happened in New Hampshire, well, maybe I am not surprised.”
Tuesday’s primary is a crucial day for Klobuchar, who after placing fifth in the Iowa caucuses, turned in a strong performance at Friday’s debate that boosted her fundraising and has given her campaign a sense of much-needed momentum.
A stronger-than-expected showing could keep her competitive in a Democratic primary that soon turns to much tougher terrain for the Minnesota senator: Nevada and South Carolina. Klobuchar has not registered any support with non-white voters in recent polls, and her campaign has not invested in those two states compared to Iowa and New Hampshire.
