Amy Klobuchar and John Bessler. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and John Bessler.

Sure, Amy Klobuchar doesn’t look to be the hottest ticket in this year’s crowd of Democratic presidential hopefuls. But after giving you the rundown on Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s law prof husband Bruce Mann, it’s only fair to put a spotlight on Klobuchar’s hubby: law professor John Bessler. (Right now, it appears only two legal academic spouses are in the running to become the first First Gentleman, but the way the field is growing, who knows?) Here’s what you need to know:

Bessler has taught at the University of Baltimore School of Law since 2009—not too far from his wife’s Capitol Hill workplace. But he’s been in the legal academy since 1998, teaching at the University of Minnesota Law School; George Washington University; and Rutgers Law School. He received tenure at Baltimore in 2014.
