Both Buttigieg and Klobuchar ran as moderate candidates and subsequently chose to endorse Joe Biden less than 24 hours after ending their candidacies. Beto O’Rourke, another former 2020 Democrat, albeit not a moderate one, also threw his support behind Biden.

This all took place in Dallas, Texas earlier tonight as Joe Biden rallied with supporters. The massive surge of support also occurred before tomorrow’s monumental Super Tuesday.

Why Are Democrats Suddenly Rallying Behind Joe Biden?

The general assumption is that massive support for Biden is a reactionary response to Bernie Sanders’ wins in the Nevada caucus and New Hampshire primary.

Many folks view his ideas as too far out there and not able to credibly stand against Trump in a general election.
