2020 candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar was endorsed for the Democratic presidential nomination by the New Hampshire Union Leader's editorial board on Saturday night.

Why it matters: The endorsement by New Hampshire's biggest paper comes ahead of the Feb. 7 Democratic presidential debate in the state and the New Hampshire caucuses four days later.

[C]an a woman be elected President? We say of course, the right woman can and should be."

What they're saying: The Manchester daily said each of the four top-tier candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and former Southbend Mayor Pete Buttigieg – has "weaknesses, whether of age, inexperience or a far-left agenda that thrills some liberals but is ripe for exploitation in a mainstream general election."

  • "Sen. Klobuchar has none of those weaknesses and the incumbent needs to be presented a challenger who is not easily dismissed," the editorial said.
"Her work in Washington has led to the passage of an impressive number of substantive bills, even as the partisan divide has deepened. In 2018 she won reelection, taking back dozens of conservative-leaning counties that had gone for [President] Trump two years earlier, when Hillary Clinton barely beat him in Minnesota. In fact, Sen. Klobuchar, a former prosecutor, has never lost an election."

The big picture: The paper's support for Klobuchar comes after she was endorsed last Sunday by the New York Times, along with Warren, whom the Des Moines Register backed for president earlier Saturday.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
