Biden: Buttigieg “reminds me of my son Beau”

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s Democratic presidential bid picked up steam on Monday (March 02) with the endorsements of two former 2020 rivals – Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar – who planned to join him on the stage at a rally on the eve of the Super Tuesday primary elections.

He said Buttigieg, “reminds me of my son Beau.”

Buttigieg, a former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who ended his White House bid on Sunday, endorsed Biden in Dallas

Biden still faces a challenge from billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg among voters hoping the party will nominate a moderate.

Klobuchar, a senator from Minnesota, will become the third 2020 candidate in as many days to drop out of the race when she announces the suspension of her campaign in Dallas, where she will also publicly back Biden, a Klobuchar aide said.

Biden is fresh off a resounding victory in Saturday’s South Carolina primary and is aiming for a strong showing on Super Tuesday against Senator Bernie Sanders, the national front-runner and a self-described democratic socialist from Vermont.

The Super Tuesday contests offer the biggest one-day haul of the 1,991 delegates needed to win the party’s nomination at its national convention in July, with about 1,357 delegates, or nearly one-third of the total number, up for grabs.
