Washington, United States:
Midwestern moderate Amy Klobuchar will end her outsider presidential campaign and support Joe Biden, her team said on Monday, the eve of the biggest election day in the Democratic nomination race.
"The senator is flying to Dallas tonight to join Vice President Biden at his rally, where she will suspend her campaign and support the Vice President," a Klobuchar campaign spokesman told AFP.
The move is a big boost for former Vice President Biden after another presenter, Pete Buttigieg, was withdrawn on Sunday.
After a blowout win in the last area code, Saturday in South Carolina, Biden is steaming into "Super Tuesday" when he challenges left-wing arsonist Bernie Sanders to see who will face Donald Trump in the November election ,
Klobuchar, a US Senator from the state of Minnesota, had positioned herself as a centrist and pragmatist who worked across the corridor in Washington and was able to bring this spirit of unity and cooperation into the Oval Office.
Despite some convincing debates, the 59-year-old has never registered above single-digit numbers in the national survey average and should not perform well on Tuesday, when 14 states take part in the elections.
Her exit leaves two women behind in the democratic nomination hunt: Senator Elizabeth Warren, a progressive from Massachusetts, and anti-war Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii.
Warren thanked her friend Klobuchar in a tweet. "You have been an advocate of working families and women in politics, and I look forward to continuing this struggle by your side," she wrote.
