Buttigieg endorses Biden prior to Super Tuesday elections

first_imgFormer South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden before a rally in Dallas on Monday night. Buttigieg ended his bid for the presidency Sunday.“When I ran for president, we made it clear that the entire idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share,” Buttigieg said in his endorsement speech. “That was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president, and it is in the name of that very same goal that I am delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for president.”Buttigieg officially ended his presidential campaign on Sunday evening with an announcement at the Century Center in South Bend. During the speech, he declined to endorse a candidate. The endorsement in Dallas comes just one day later, after Senator Amy Klobuchar also left the presidential race. Klobuchar has also offered her endorsement to Biden.Buttigieg dropped his candidacy ahead of Super Tuesday on March 3, when 14 states will hold their Democratic primary elections. Buttigieg won the Iowa caucuses earlier this month, and came in a close second to Senator Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire primary less than a week later. But, he received 14.3% of the vote in the Nevada caucuses and only 8.2% of the vote in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, behind Biden, Sanders and billionaire Tom Steyer.Buttigieg was the mayor of South Bend from 2012 to 2020. Mayor James Mueller took office Jan. 1 of this year.Tags: 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieglast_img read more
