The race for the Democratic nomination is slowing down after the week of Super Tuesday removes four of the biggest contenders for this election cycle.


Sunday saw the end of Former South Bend City Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign. Buttigieg had been very popular with moderates with objections to Former Vice President Joe Biden and had also gained a great deal of press for being America’s first viable openly gay presidential candidate.


Monday spelled the end of billionaire Tom Steyer and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar’s bids for the White House. Klobuchar built her campaign upon her appeal to moderate midwesterners, climate change action and health care policy, seeking to set herself apart from the former vice president, but ultimately ended up endorsing him directly following her announcement.


Both Klobuchar and Buttigieg have since thrown in their lots with Biden, but recent polls suggest that Klobuchar and Buttigieg’s supporters are more inclined to side with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.


Wednesday Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined Klobuchar and Buttigieg in their endorsement of Joe Biden after his own campaign ended. Bloomberg’s campaign cited Biden’s overwhelming comeback in South Carolina primaries and the other centrists’ support of Biden as well as his own lack of pledged delegates as reasons for his withdrawal from the race.


Thursday ended the spree of removals from the race with progressive Elizabeth Warren announcing the end of her once-promising campaign. Warren’s campaign had a fiercely loyal cult following and many had praised her debate performances but met with trip-ups such as the controversy over her claimed Native American ethnicity during her time at Harvard or her claims on sexism directed towards Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.


Warren has been receiving pressure from many to endorse a candidate, but information from inside the campaign says that she has no plans to endorse any of the three remaining candidates, though many experts are saying that her supporters are most likely to support Sanders due to the similarity of their policy and ideological views.


The final three candidates remaining are Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Hawaiian congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who has to date one pledged vote at the Democratic National Convention.


The candidate will fall between Biden or Sanders, with the next major date for primaries being March 17, the date of the Ohio Democratic primary, which is expected to go to Sanders, but many are saying may see the rebirth of Ohio’s swing-state status.
