LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota visited the University of Louisville on Monday, joining Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as part of a lecture series at the McConnell Center that dates back to 1993.

McConnell praised Klobuchar’s ability to build bipartisan relationships and her dedication to all of Minnesota.

She spoke to a room full of McConnell Scholars, a leadership program that provides scholarships to hand-picked Kentucky students.

Aside from bipartisanship, Klobuchar discussed with the scholars the creation of a competitive business field in areas such as technology. She discussed anti-trust legislation that she would like to see passed.

“I think it is time that we start looking at this not as to radically destroy companies, or anything like that,” Klobuchar said. “What we’re looking at is putting some rules of the road in place when it comes to competition policy.”

The students were pleased to hear from Klobuchar as well as McConnell.

“I think in today’s political climate that’s not something that we get the opportunity to see in person,” said Junior McConnell Scholar Sydney Finley. “A lot of what we’re seeing is on news outlets and the media. So that was something that I really appreciated was just being able to have that and first hand experience.”

Klobuchar is one of more than 60 speakers who have addressed students at the McConnell Center since 1993.
