CNN reported that Klobuchar will endorse former Vice President Joe Biden, the overwhelming winner of the South Carolina primary.

Klobuchar exiting the race comes the day after former Mayor Pete Buttigieg similarly dropped out of the race after failing to earn delegates in South Carolina. Earlier today, CNN reported that Buttigieg is considering throwing his weight behind Biden as well.

Since announcing her presidential campaign in February 2019, the senator from Minnesota has generated enthusiastic support from many Democrats — and even some conservatives — who saw her the most solid option to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.

The three-term senator and former prosecutor is by all accounts a liberal, but further towards the ideological center of the Democratic Party than many other 2020 candidates. She also has a long history of both winning over rural, Republican areas in her home state of Minnesota and effectively working with Republicans on legislation.
