Senator Amy Klobuchar announced she will end her presidential bid, her campaign said in a statement Monday.

According to her campaign. Klobuchar will endorse former Vice President Joe Biden.

Klobuchar’s exit from the race comes less than 24 hours after Pete Buttigieg also dropped out of the democratic race.

Klobuchar only garnered 3 percent of the vote in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, a result that all-but-closed off her path to the nomination.
