Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar released Wednesday the first TV ad of her 2020 presidential campaign, making the case that she is best to be president for “all of America.”

The ad, “All of America,” is set to air in Iowa and New Hampshire Thursday ahead of the Democratic candidate’s upcoming visits to both of those early states.

The 30-second spot was published on Klobuchar’s YouTube page on Wednesday. It highlights Klobuchar’s moderate, pro-working-class views and features Klobuchar meeting with supporters and highlights her performance during ABC’s Democratic debate earlier last month.

In the ad, she encourages those dissuaded by the recent polarization to support her message of unity. She says on the September debate stage, “If you feel stuck in the middle of the extremes in our politics and you are tired of the noise and the nonsense, you’ve got a home with me.”

“I am someone who tells the truth, I don’t make promises I can’t keep,” Klobuchar said.

The release of the ad comes comes more than a week ahead of the next primary debate on October 15, as Klobuchar is struggling to gain momentum in a crowded primary. While she has qualified for the debate stage, Klobuchar has consistently polled behind the front-runners and has yet to release fundraising numbers for the third quarter, which ended earlier this week.

Klobuchar returns to Iowa for the 20th time Thursday. She has so far visited more than half of Iowa’s 99 counties. She’ll also head to New Hampshire for her 14th visit to the state on Sunday.
