Billionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who makes his first appearance on primary ballots in Super Tuesday states, said on Monday that he talked to his former rivals Senator Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg who recently dropped out of the 2020 race and wished them well.
'I felt sorry' for Buttigieg, Klobuchar: Bloomberg
"I talked to Mayor Pete and Amy Klobuchar... I wished them all the best and I thought both of them behaved themselves... but they represented their country and their states very well, and I felt sorry for them and I am in it to win it," Bloomberg said.
Klobuchar, a U.S. Senator from Minnesota, will announce the suspension of her White House campaign in Dallas on Monday where she will publicly back Biden, a campaign aide said.
Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg also plans to endorse Biden a day after ending his campaign, a top adviser said.
