Amy Klobuchar to drop out of 2020 presidential race
Amy Klobuchar ended her bid for the presidency Monday and plans to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination, a day before the biggest primary night of the 2020 campaign.
The Klobuchar campaign said she will fly to Dallas late Monday for a rally with Biden where she will officially suspend her campaign and endorse him.
The Minnesota senator performed poorly in three of the four early-voting states, depriving her of any path to the nomination. The momentum she gained from a third-place finish in New Hampshire quickly vanished when she finished in sixth place in both Nevada and South Carolina.
Klobuchar had positioned herself as the Democrat most likely to reach voters who went for President Donald Trump in 2016, but her lack of appeal to the minority voters who are key to a Democratic win ultimately sank her candidacy.
