Pete Buttigieg, the first openly gay presidential candidate dropped out and endorsed Biden several hours ago. Amy Klobuchar also endorsed Biden hours later at a loud rally in Texas, and called on all her supporters to rally behind him.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a once 2020 contender, also endorsed Joe Biden at the same rally.

Former President Barack Obama had also called for the suspension of anti-Biden campaign ads in South Carolina, an indication that he was backing his former VP.

Bernie Sanders, the socialist democrat who is leading Biden with a few delegates at this time may now find it hard to win the nomination even if he gets more delegates on Tuesday.
