Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke Endorse Joe Biden for the U.S. Democratic Nomination

Joe Biden welcomed former rivals Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke into the fold Monday in a show of force by the Democratic Party’s establishment against front-runner Bernie Sanders the night before Super Tuesday.

Buttigieg and Klobuchar dropped out of the race in the last 24 hours and threw their support behind Biden, whose decisive win in South Carolina on Saturday appears to have cemented his status as the moderate alternative to Sanders’s democratic socialism.

The moves come just hours before polls open on Super Tuesday, when 14 states and one territory vote. The once-sprawling field is down to just five: Biden, Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg and Tulsi Gabbard.

The crowd of more than 2,000 in Dallas was the one of the biggest Biden has seen since he launched his presidential run last August.

Klobuchar announced her departure from the race at Biden’s rally and introduced the former vice president by saying, “I can’t think of a better way to end my campaign than joining his.”

Biden spoke at length about uniting not only the Democratic Party but also the country.

“We’re based on an idea,” he said after reciting the preamble to the Constitution. “We’ve never fully lived up to it but we’ve never walked away from it like this president has.”
