González: “I think at this point in time we need to narrow the field and unite as Democrats to defeat Trump in November 2020.”
Meanwhile, Rep. Vicente González (D-TX) has switched his endorsement from Castro to Biden.
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.DONATE
