Klobuchar celebrates Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize

Singer Bob Dylan won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature and because he was born in Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota, Sen. Amy Klobuchar showed her home state pride.

“Like so many, I grew up listening to Bob Dylan’s music and it filled me with pride to say that he was from Minnesota,” the senator said in a statement. “Congratulations to Bob Dylan on his unprecedented contributions to American music and for receiving this most-deserved Nobel Prize.”
