ATLANTA — Sen. Amy Klobuchar said it is incumbent on the 2020 presidential candidates to say how they are going to pay for their far-reaching visions.

“I am not going to go for things just because they sound good on a bumper sticker,” she said in the fifth presidential debate. “I think we have an obligation as a party to be, yes, fiscally responsible.”

Ms. Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said that she has clearly spelled out how she plans to pay for her campaign promises.
