Five presidential candidates remain on eve of 'Super Tuesday' primary
As Minnesota prepares for its first presidential primary since 1992, five Democratic candidates remain in the race, though many who have already dropped out will appear on the ballot.
U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar became the latest candidate to drop out on Monday , stating her intention to throw her support behind former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and current U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with current U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, are the active candidates remaining as Minnesotans prepare to go to the polls. The candidacies of Indiana's Pete Buttegieg and California billionaire Tom Steyer did not survive the weekend, though they, along with Klobuchar and earlier dropouts Michael Bennet, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, John K. Delaney, Deval Patrick, Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang, were included on the Minnesota primary ballots printed in December.
President Donald Trump is the lone candidate to appear on the Republican ticket, though primary voters may choose to throw their support behind one of two official write-in candidates, Rocky De La Fuente or William “Bill” Weld, if they prefer not to vote for the incumbent.
Live voting begins Tuesday morning at 7 a.m., with polls in all participating precincts remaining open until 8 p.m. Not sure where your polling place is? Visit pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us and type in your address.
