Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) announces her presidential bid in front of a crowd gathered at Boom Island Park on Feb. 10, 2019, in Minneapolis.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar will head to New Hampshire next Monday to answer questions at a town hall moderated by CNN's Don Lemon.

The Democratic senator and presidential hopeful will take questions from likely New Hampshire primary voters at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. The town hall will air at 10 p.m. ET.

The three-term senator from Minnesota announced her candidacy for the presidency on Sunday at a freezing, snowy event in Minneapolis. Klobuchar joins a growing field of Democrats hoping to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.

In her speech Sunday, Klobuchar pledged to take on issues like money in politics, climate change and election reform. As heavy snow piled on her and the crowd gathered to support her, Klobuchar spoke of her working-class roots and pitched herself as someone who can win bipartisan support and Midwestern states that went for Trump in 2016.

"I'm asking you to join us on this campaign. It's a homegrown one," Klobuchar said. "I don't have a political machine. I don't come from money. But what I do have is this: I have grit."
