“We were going to win Minnesota. We had our polls, several public ones, and I knew that. But then I thought, ‘What is our path?’ and, ‘What’s really important to me?’” she said. “And what’s really important to me is beating Donald Trump and while I would of loved to be that candidate, I think Joe Biden is going to be a great president. He’s going to bring decency back and dignity to the White House, which to me is the No. 1 priority for this country.”
On the topic of Bernie Sanders, Klobuchar reiterated that she does believe there should be a socialist heading the Democratic ticket.
“We have to have someone – as one prominent Democrat said — who is actually listening to where the people are,” she said. “That prominent Democrat was Barack Obama, he said it a few months ago.”MORE NEWS: 'It Was Love At First Sight': Amelia Santaniello's Love Letter To Minnesota
