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.
