Democrat Amy Klobuchar, a U.S. senator from Minnesota, is ending her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination and endorsing rival former V.P. Joe Biden, her campaign confirmed on Monday.

Klobuchar, whose campaign failed build momentum, will try to throw her support behind Biden in a bid to consolidate the moderate vote and stop liberal U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

The moderate Klobuchar’s withdrawal the day before Super Tuesday leaves five Democrats in the race for the party’s nod to run against Republican Donald Trump in November.
