After Castro’s Cringe-worthy Debate Performance, TX Rep. Switches Endorsement to Biden

González: “I think at this point in time we need to narrow the field and unite as Democrats to defeat Trump in November 2020.”

After taking a pot shot at former Vice President and current 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden, Julian Castro doubled-down.  He told CNN that he wouldn’t do anything differently.

Watch:

Meanwhile, Rep. Vicente González (D-TX) has switched his endorsement from Castro to Biden.

Politico reports:

Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro lost one of his congressional endorsements Sunday, with Texas Rep. Vicente González switching to support former Vice President Joe Biden.

González was one of three Texas representatives who endorsed the former HUD secretary, along with Castro’s twin brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro, and Rep. Colin Allred. González announced his endorsement for Julián Castro in March, saying at the time, “I know firsthand his passion for expanding opportunity for the Latino community, people of color, and historically disenfranchised communities, as well as his unparalleled dedication to building a bench of dynamic Democratic candidates in Texas and nationally.”

González announced his switch to CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday morning, saying: “I think at this point in time we need to narrow the field and unite as Democrats to defeat Trump in November 2020. And that is why I believe I’m moving my support to Vice President Joe Biden.”

Given that Castro has pretty much zero chance of winning the Democrat nomination let alone the presidency, this is unsurprising.

According to Politico, González implied as much when he “noted that Castro was ‘polling in the low single digits’.”  Thursday’s debate performance won’t change his standing, at least not by increasing his numbers.

That sound you hear is Castro’s open-borders, reparations, free stuff for everyone long-shot campaign losing what little steam it had left.

Julian, you got some ‘splainin’ to do.

I’m old enough to remember Goldwater. I rather liked him, but he is an object example of what happens to strong ideological campaigns.

I’m old enough to remember Goldwater. I rather liked him, but he is an object example of what happens to strong ideological campaigns. The democrats could lose much more than the presidential race.

At least the country is spared looking at his smug face to a large degree.
There are some people who have a face and attitude where you are so very tempted to just punch them square in the nose. This turd is one such.
He has that attitude of being superior to everyone, while I wouldn’t let him clean my pool for fear he’d steal the water.

It’s been quite the spectacle to see these Democrats rip each other to shreds, while competing to be ever more extreme. They learned nothing from 2016.

If Trump wasn’t such a clownish jerk, next year would be 1964 or 1972 all over again. Because he’s such an exposed nerve ending, next year’s election will be much closer than it deserves to be.

    “If Trump wasn’t such a…”

    The random POS still trying to sell Hillary.

    No sale.

    Clownish jerks pick names like “randomcrank”.

      Funny you should say that. I have taken a ridiculous amount of s*** from “progressive” friends for referring to her as “The Hildebeast.” Nope, didn’t vote for her. I cast a write-in for Vermin Supreme, the Vermont performance artist who promised a pony for every American.

      I found it liberating. Among other things, having freed myself from loyalties, I managed to win opposing bets last time: one for Trump to win, and the other for The Hildebeast to win, but by less than 4%.

      I am genuinely independent. When Trump won, I was at least as surprised as he was. And I laughed at the media. Oh, the long faces! I hoped (but never expected) that he’d fulfill his campaign promise to be presidential and boring, but that would be like asking the Taliban not to play soccer with severed goat heads.

      I have tried to tell liberal friends to look on the bright side and realize that Trump is such a chaotic administrator that, as Rs go, they should thank their lucky stars that the president spends his days watching TV and his nights tweeting, as opposed to nailing in his policies.

      To no avail. And now you are upset because I, a big fan of rodeo, recognize a rodeo clown when I see one. It tells me I’m doing something right and am as independent as it gets. But I do wish we had a center-right president who had his act together. It would be good for the country, which matters most to me.

        “I cast a write-in for…”

        As I was saying, trying to elect Hillary. Fortunately for those of us that favor freedom, you’re a miserable failure, and your current efforts will fail as well.

        Writing horsepuckey doesn’t change a damn thing.

        “…they should thank their lucky stars that the president spends his days watching TV and his nights tweeting, as opposed to nailing in his policies.”

        It’s hard to tell if you’re just an idiot or a liar.

        Then it dawned on me that like all progs, you’re both, and add “fool” to the list.

        Too bad you can’t recognize him when he arrives.

    Besmirching the great Donaldus Maximus as a “clownish jerk” outs you as just another one of them, chump.

    I find your comment unobjectionable but wrong. Trump’s problem isn’t his chaotic nature. He isn’t naturally chaotic. He’s probably impossible to work for, but that’s OK. I am not working for him. He is working for me. I’ll vote to rehire him in Nov. next year.

    Trump’s problem is all the RINO slime who would really rather have a Dem than him, some supported by the spooks, some supported by foreigners, trying to disrupt everything he does. If someone’s always trying to trip you, you may make progress but it won’t be super graceful.

Ignorant clown. Wrong approach.

Does anyone else think that we’re seeing less of a competition of ideas than of product positioning?

Wow. Actually Castro said nothing wrong. Biden tried to say “X” and then “not X”. You can’t let people get away with that, otherwise they have these miraculous policies that do everything and cost very little — and they’re really not magic, but you’re not allowed to point out the inconsistencies.

The CNN guy couldn’t just accept it. CNN is obviously in the tank for Biden (and they have been since the first debate.) “How dare you criticize Joe Biden? they asked one of Biden’s competitors!”

I guess these other guys are allowed to fund-raise and keep their base awake, but Biden’s really supposed to win.

So now Castro is out, which is fine with me. And Trump has lots of footage related to Biden’s self-contradiction, and also CNN’s frantic defense of Biden. That’s fine with me too!
