I said all along Amy Klobuchar was campaigning for Vice President. Today I believe we have confirmation.

Please consider Sen. Amy Klobuchar drops out of Democratic race for president and plans to endorse Joe Biden, her campaign says

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar ended her Democratic presidential campaign on Monday and plans to endorse rival Joe Biden in an effort to unify moderate voters behind the former vice president’s White House bid.

She is flying to Dallas and plans to join Biden at his rally Monday night, according to her campaign.

Klobuchar was the second presidential candidate to exit the race in less than 24 hours, following Pete Buttigieg’s departure late Sunday. Their decisions reflect an urgent push among moderates to consolidate behind Biden as a counter to progressive rival Bernie Sanders.

Expected Action

I expected Klobuchar to drop out and endorse Biden but only after winning Minnesota.


This was smart.

Klobuchar never attacked Biden in the debates and that was an indication to me that she was running for VP all along. Politically this was very smart as Biden is a one-term president if he even lasts that long.

A few hours ago I penned Fearless Forecast: What to Expect on Super Tuesday.

But this has the potential to dramatically affect Super Tuesday tomorrow.

For starters, I am flipping my Texas forecast from Sanders to Biden.

I will work out new totals shortly.

To answer my question: Did she cut a deal for VP with Biden? I say yes.
