(NBC NEWS) –– Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said Monday morning that her husband, law professor John Bessler, has coronavirus.

“While I cannot see him and he is of course cut off from all visitors, our daughter Abigail and I are constantly calling and texting and emailing,” Klobuchar said in a statement on Medium. “We love him very much and pray for his recovery. He is exhausted and sick but a very strong and resilient person.”
