Amy Klobuchar Ends Presidential Bid

Via The Washington Examiner:

Amy Klobuchar ended her presidential bid after failing to maintain a bump in momentum following the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary.

Klobuchar told campaign staff on Monday that she is ending her campaign after a series of disappointing finishes in the four early nominating contests, multiple news outlets reported.

She is set to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden at a Dallas rally on Monday. Her exit from the race comes less than a day after former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg ended his campaign. Each had single-digit finishes in Saturday’s South Carolina primary.

Klobuchar, 59, became an attractive candidate for voters looking for a centrist candidate — those seeking an alternative to socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders who were not confident in 77-year-old Biden’s stamina or the experience of 38-year-old Buttigieg.
