NBC’s Chuck Todd was once Amy Klobuchar’s landlord, a detail not disclosed in Presidential run interviews

Breaking The News’ reveals NBC’s Chuck Todd was Amy Klobuchar’s landlord, something that was not disclosed during interviews and coverage. 

In 2008, not long after becoming a U.S. senator, Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and her husband, John Bessler, began renting a house in Arlington, Virginia, from Chuck Todd, then NBC News’ political director. After Klobuchar’s campaign announcement, Todd offered viewers his analysis of Klobuchar’s candidacy. Her biggest asset, according to Todd, was “Location, location, location.” 

According to Page Six, which first reported the relationship, Klobuchar and her husband paid the Todds $3,200 a month. This relationship went undisclosed for years, even though Todd went on to question Klobuchar at least eight times on-air during her 2020 campaign, 4 times on “Meet the Press” and also as the moderator of two of the primary debates, on June 26th 2019 and on February 19th 2020.

This was not Todd’s only financial connection to Democratic campaigns. His wife, Kristian Denny, is a Democratic campaign consultant. According to OpenSecrets, Denny’s firm, Maverick Strategies, was paid over $900,000 by the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2020 and over $1.5 million from Sanders in 2016.
