Sen. Amy Klobuchar pulled out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination Monday, ending a campaign that had been a long shot from the start but which took her further than any Minnesota politician in more than 35 years.

Recognizing that she had no viable path to the nomination, Klobuchar immediately threw her support to former Vice President Joe Biden.

Buttigieg and Klobuchar, Midwestern moderates who sparred sharply in recent weeks, exited the race within 24 hours of each other.

On Sunday night, the Klobuchar campaign canceled a Twin Cities homecoming rally after an extended disruption by Black Lives Matter activists.

But the greatest pressure facing Klobuchar in the last few days of her campaign was that she simply had no path to victory. »
