Bernie Sanders has spent his entire campaign saying this day would come.
Now, it’s here.
There’s a whiff of desperation to this move. It’s not hard to see why: If Sanders, who leads in the delegate count, performs well in delegate-rich states such as Texas and California, he might be unstoppable on his way to winning the nomination at the convention this summer.
That’s an unacceptable outcome to a powerful bloc of the Democratic Party. It’s why Buttigieg and Klobuchar have moved so quickly to endorse Biden. It’s why Sanders opponents started Super PAC called the Big Tent Project to run advertisements criticizing Sanders as a radical who would lose to Trump.
Im Rennen um die Präsidentschaftskandidatur der US-Demokraten bekommt Ex-Vizepräsident Joe Biden vor dem „Super Tuesday“ wichtige Unterstützung von bisherigen Konkurrenten. Nach dem Rückzug seiner Bewerbung sagte der frühere Bürgermeister von South Bend (Indiana), Pete Buttigieg, im texanischen Dallas: „Wir brauchen eine Politik, in der es um Anstand geht“. Dafür sei Biden der richtige Kandidat.
The former vice president picked up the support ahead of crucial primaries on Super Tuesday.
Joe Biden just had the best day of his campaign.
The former vice president racked up three key endorsements in the span of 24 hours, earning the backing of former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke on the same night.
Activists are upset with the case of a black teen sentenced to life in prison while Klobuchar was the county’s prosecutor.
