Monday turned out to be a huge day for former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign, which was flatlining beforehand. Biden received the endorsements of Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, both of whom exited the race ahead of Super Tuesday. 

Former Vice President Biden also received the endorsement of once-rising star of the Democratic Party, Beto O’Rourke:

O'Rourke was once viewed as the Democratic Party's young all-star during his bid for the Senate against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and during O'Rourke's attempt at the Democratic nomination for president. Both bids ultimately failed. O'Rourke's endorsement comes on the eve of Super Tuesday, with Biden still trailing Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) in most Texas polls:

Super Tuesday is shaping up to be an interesting contest between former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Mayor of New York City Mike Bloomberg still remaining in the race.
