Klobuchar, Steyer are stumped on Mexican president’s name

Democratic presidential candidates Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer were unable to name Mexico’s president during a Nevada candidate forum in Las Vegas.
Klobuchar, Steyer, and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg were asked during separate televised interviews with Telemundo on Friday whether they could name Mexico’s leader, Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador.
“Can you tell me his name?” Klobuchar was asked by a reporter.
“No,” the three-term Minnesota senator said.
Steyer, a billionaire businessman, said he “forgot.”
Buttigieg was the only one of the three participants to correctly name the Mexican leader.
The Klobuchar campaign didn’t immediately respond to a report the candidate left the interview before it was scheduled to end.
Nevada, which is more racially diverse than previous contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, will test candidates’ abilities to appeal to minority voters.
The state will hold its Democratic presidential caucuses on Feb. 22.
