'I believe in Joe': Sen. Kamala Harris endorses Biden for president

Sen. Kamala Harris, who clashed with Joe Biden on the debate stage earlier in the Democratic primary race, endorsed the former vice president on Sunday. 

The California Democrat said in a Twitter post that Biden “has served our country with dignity and we need him now more than ever. I will do everything in my power to help elect him the next President of the United States.” 

“I have decided that I am, with great enthusiasm, going to endorse Joe Biden for president of the United States,” Harris said in a video directed at her supporters, which was posted with the tweet. “I believe in Joe. I really believe in him and I have known him for a long time. One of the things that we need right now, is we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people. And I believe Joe can do that.

The 2020 candidates:Who is still running for president? Who has dropped out? An interactive guide

Harris dropped out of the race in December, citing a lack of funds. When she left, the number of candidates remaining in the field was still in the double-digits. Now, only Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii remain.  Gabbard, with only two delegates under her belt after Super Tuesday, does not appear to have a viable path to the nomination. 

Before dropping out of the race, Harris was consistently one of the top-five performing candidates in national polls, along with Biden, Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Buttigieg, Warren and Sen. Amy Klobuchar all dropped out after disappointing performances on Super Tuesday, when a third of the pledged delegates needed to secure the nomination was at stake. Buttigieg and Klobuchar quickly endorsed Biden after dropping out, as did former candidate and Rep. Beto O’Rourke.
