How did Sanders react to the Biden endorsements?

On Super Tuesday, voters in 14 states will pick their preferred Democratic candidate for November’s election.

The Democratic frontrunner remains the left-wing senator, Bernie Sanders.

Democratic centrists have been calling on party figures to urgently unite to try and stop Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, from becoming the party’s nominee to take on President Donald Trump, a Republican.

Mr Sanders, meanwhile, has been steadily picking up endorsements from left-leaning Democrats, activist groups and high-profile celebrities.

Ms Klobuchar, a Minnesota senator, suspended her campaign and endorsed Mr Biden on Monday.

Appearing alongside Mr Biden on Monday night, she said: “If we spend the next four months dividing our party and going at each other, we will spend the next four year watching Donald Trump tear apart our country.”

Mr Buttigieg, a former mayor from Indiana who dropped out of the race on Sunday, said at another event with Mr Biden: “I’m looking for a leader, I’m looking for a president, who will draw out what’s best in each of us.”

Ms Klobuchar and Mr Buttigieg had both been competing with Mr Biden for the same pool of centrist Democratic voters.

Both stepped aside following Mr Biden’s overwhelming victory in South Carolina at the weekend, which came after he struggled in the first three Democratic leadership contests this year.
