Amy Klobuchar Has #Klomentum Say Supporters After Senator Beats Biden and Warren in New Hampshire

Senator Amy Klobuchar’s supporters were touting the #Klomentum hashtag on social media after a late surge saw her finish third in the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday.

Using the hashtags #Klomentum and #Klobmentum, fans of the Minnesota senator called her performance in the first primary of the 2020 election campaign “incredible” and a demonstration of her “viability” in the race.

As the New Hampshire primary results stood on Wednesday morning, Klobuchar was in third place on 19.8 percent of the vote after 87 percent of precincts had reported their final tallies.

Klobuchar’s position in the race put her a little more than 10 points above former frontrunners Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren and left her with six of the 24 delegates up for grabs.

“While there are ballots still left the count, we have beaten the odds every step of the way,” Klobuchar told her supporters in New Hampshire as the results came in. “We have done it on the merits, we have done it with ideas, and we have done it with hard work.”

Although the #Klomentum and #Klobmentum hashtags had not made it into the U.S. Twitter trending chart in the early hours of this morning, both supporters and critics of Klobuchar were active on them after her surprise third-place finish.

“I couldn’t be more proud of my friend @amyklobuchar for her incredible performance in tonight’s New Hampshire primary,” Minnesota Governor Tim Walz tweeted, along with the #Klobmentum tag.

“Amy has shown time and time again that she can bring people together and build a winning coalition to beat Donald Trump.”
