Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EDT Aug 9, 2019 Asabe Danpollo, 24, has one of those dream jobs that more young professionals are yearning to get. As part of the perks of working at PwC, her company promises to pay $100 a month toward her student loan debt. The offer covers up to six years — potentially knocking off up to $7,200 in principal.

In front of a national audience Monday evening, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar laid out her arguments for why she should be the next president of the United States. Klobuchar billed herself as a centrist Democrat from the heartland who would “govern from opportunity” instead of chaos during a CNN town hall meeting aired live from New Hampshire. The state holds the first primary of the 2020 presidential election season. “I think what we need right now in this country is less of this grandstanding and gridlock, less of the shutdowns … and the put-downs, and much more of pushing our country forward,” said Klobuchar, who joined Sen.

He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.
