When asked by "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie if she would consider being vice president, Klobuchar replied: "I am just doing my work right now. I am one day out of having left my own campaign."

"I'm going back to Minnesota to celebrate the work with our staff," the senator added. "That's where my focus is." 


Klobuchar also said that the decision to withdraw from the race was hers alone, that she wasn't pushed by anyone and that suspending her campaign was "the right thing to do."

On why she endorsed Biden, she said, "I think he has this decency that's exactly what we need right now in the White House and a heart that just isn't there right now."

“You want a candidate that not just builds a coalition of fired-up Democrats, which we've got, but also brings in independents, moderate Republicans," Klobuchar explained. "That's how we won back the House of Representatives, and that's what Joe Biden can do."
