Amy Klobuchar is reportedly ending her presidential bid just a day before voters cast their ballots on Super Tuesday.

The New York Times is reporting that the Minnesota senator is dropping out of the race and intends to endorse Joe Biden.

She is traveling to Dallas on Monday, where she will join the former VP.

It comes after her pre-Super Tuesday rally in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, was canceled after protesters took over the stage calling for justice for Myon Burrell.

The pressure was on Klobuchar to drop out from the race following Pete Buttigieg's decision to end his campaign on Saturday.

Klobuchar underperformed in South Carolina, as well as having a disappointing showing in Nevada after a third-place finish in New Hampshire had given her campaign some momentum.

Her decision to endorse Biden represents an effort by the more moderate Democratic candidates to head off the campaign of current leader Bernie Sanders.

It comes just a day before Super Tuesday as well, where Klobuchar was the favorite to win in her home state based on recent polls, though wasn't polling as favorably in the other 12 states casting their ballots tomorrow.

It's too late for any Minnesotans who voted early for Klobuchar to change their ballot. You can only change an early vote 7 days before the election.
