ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has promoted an aide to be her 2012 campaign manager.

The Democratic senator says Justin Buoen will hold the top campaign job. Klobuchar has a skeletal staff with a year to go before voters decide if she’ll get a second term.

Buoen, 30, has held various roles for Klobuchar since 2005.

Three Republicans are currently seeking their party’s nomination and Klobuchar has token opposition from within her party.

    Amy, If you want to get re-elected the most important thing you can do is to get OBAMACARE repealed. You should be ashamed of yourself for voting for it in the first place and voting against the republican attempy to repeal it, since you had never read the monstrosity and I would guess you still haven’t read it. You are a poor excuse for a senator who listens to her constituents. You have been in the senate too long and it is time to relace you.
