Sen. Amy Klobuchar says she will 'do better' in treatment of staffers

As more former aides shared stories of sometimes-abusive behavior, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar vowed Friday to improve relations with her staffers.

The Minnesota presidential candidate is trying to rise from a large field of competitors as stories about her treatment of employees long shared privately among Democratic operatives and insiders are spilling into the open. Former employees of her Senate office and previous political campaigns have anonymously described to BuzzFeed, the New York Times and now the Star Tribune, many examples of behavior by Klobuchar they considered abusive, bullying and demeaning.

Im incredibly proud of the work our staff has done and I would not be here without amazing staff, Klobuchar said in a statement to the Star Tribune. I know I can be tough, I know I can push people too hard, and I also know I can do better and I will.

Klobuchar did not grant an interview for this story.
