Biden nabs Klobuchar, Buttigieg backing on Super Tuesday eve

Election

HOUSTON (AP/CNN) – Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg are uniting behind Joe Biden’s presidential bid as the Democratic Party’s moderate wing scrambles to boost the former vice president just hours before voting begins in high-stakes Super Tuesday states.

Klobuchar formally suspended her campaign and endorsed Biden on Monday, a day after Buttigieg announced his exit.

Buttigieg announced his support for Biden Monday night at a rally in Dallas that Klobuchar also planned to attend.

“When I ran for president, we made it clear that the whole idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share. And that was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president. And it is in the name of that very same goal that I’m delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for president,” former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said.

Fourteen states, one U.S. territory and Democrats abroad cast ballots Tuesday.
