Klobuchar ends Democratic presidential bid, set to endorse Biden

I’m sure she would LOVE to be VP!


Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar is ending her Democratic presidential campaign and will endorse Joe Biden as part of an apparent effort by lower-performing candidates to derail Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ march to the nomination.

Fox News has confirmed that Klobuchar plans to endorse Biden on Monday night in Texas, one of the 14 states holding contests on Super Tuesday.

“The Klobuchar campaign confirms the senator is flying to Dallas to join Vice President Biden at his rally tonight where she will suspend her campaign and endorse the vice president,” said Carlie Waibel, the Klobuchar campaign press secretary.

Klobuchar’s withdrawal comes a day before the Super Tuesday contests and follows former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s exit from the race. It’s unclear whether Buttigieg will ultimately get behind Biden too.

But the exits of Buttigieg and Klobuchar signal the underlying concern party leaders have about the trajectory of the 2020 race: that unless those candidates representing the more moderate end of the spectrum close ranks behind the most viable choice, Sanders, the independent from Vermont, could steamroll his way to become the party’s standard-bearer in November’s election.

    We all know there is a payoff somewhere in Klobacher and Buttgig’s future.

    Unfortunately for the Party Elders, the Bernie Bros know this as well, and these guys are p.o.’d, bigly.
    The guys i follow are not the riotous kind, but their friends are. Milwaukee is not going to be pretty. These poor guys still think their primary votes actually count in the Socialist democrat candidate selection. Poor fools.

    Think the Republican Party Elders will appreciate their more sedate base (us), after seeing the behavior at this year’s Socialist democrat convention?

      No. The Republican Party elders view us kind of like their own check book. The 2016 was a wake up call as much to them as to the Dems, but they are still sound asleep. Or maybe actually drunk. Either way, out of it.
