Julián Castro Withdraws From 2020 Democratic Presidential race

Julián Castro Withdraws From 2020 Democratic Presidential race

I forgot he was still running.

https://youtu.be/HE2nUstHQOQ

Former housing secretary Julián Castro announced this morning he has ended his presidential campaign.

Castro, once considered “a rising star in the Democratic Party,” never broke through to the top or even middle tier of the Democratic primary.

In his four-minute video, Castro promised he is “not done fighting.” The unapologetic big-government liberal vowed he will “keep working towards a nation where everyone counts, a nation where everyone can get a good job, good health care and a decent place to live.” Castro wants to decriminalize illegal border crossings and jumped on the impeachment wagon almost immediately last summer.

He took a huge hit in Houston when he asked former Vice President Joe Biden is he could remember what he said two minutes ago. People saw this as an attack on Biden’s age. Castro lost the support of Congressional Hispanic Caucus member Rep. Vicente Gonzalez over the question.

Castro failed to make the last two debates or even achieve 2% in the polls despite promising government handouts for basically everything. Along with Sen. Cory Booker, he whined to the DNC about unfair qualifications for the January primary debate. More than likely he would not have participated in that debate.

The campaign shut down operations in New Hampshire and South Carolina. Castro raised $3.5 million in the third quarter, but he only had $672,000 cash on hand.

To be consistant, CNN ought to say “The Democratic field just got less diverse.”

What they will say is “Orange man bad.”

You mean his brothers doxing of their local constituents as Trump contributors and hoping to stir up violence against them wasn’t a winning plan?

I thought it was at least as good as Eric Swalwell’s key strategy to threaten US citizens with nukes and then squeeze gas bombs off on TV after he withdrew from race.

I’m continually amazed at the number of democrats, deep-staters, Hollywood beautifuls, and others that continue to believe that if they just demean and insult the American public a little more we’ll finally come over to their side. We’ll admit that we’re stupid morons and illiterate jack-a-knapes, bow to their greatness and say: “Thank you so much, what was I thinking???!!!???”
Perhaps I should stop being amazed?

    That demeaning is nothing new. Adlai Stevenson had some opinions that were less than flattering regarding the very people he wanted voting for him.

    Not having an internal compass of their own, leftists confirm to whatever they think will get them the approval of others.

    As we’ve seen in many examples, leftists do in fact believe that words can hurt you just as much as sticks and stones. So they can’t imagine that anyone would risk disapproval and identify themselves with things that have been labelled “stupid”, “deplorable”, “evil”, etc.

    This in turn has convinced them that the way to influence people is to call them such names. (While at the same time pass “hate speech” laws to punish anyone who says unkind things about themselves or groups they favor.)

Well bless his little heart.

As each one of these no name leftists withdraws, leaving only Biden and maybe Sanders and Warren on the stage, their (few) supporters are not going to support Biden.
Castro’s supporters, and Harris’, and whoever else withdraws next week (Booker?) will go to a more extreme leftist candidate, not to Biden.
I think Biden’s numbers will slowly decline relative to Warren and Sanders, to the point where his campaign will run out of steam.
My most fervent prayer is for a Sanders/Warren ticket, which would ensure a 40 state win for Trump.
I could seen Warren and Sanders agreeing to run as a team (president/VP), similar to Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina in their failed attempt to derail the Trump nomination in 2016.

I forgot he was still in it lol

Castro promised he is “not done fighting.” What is it these liberals are constantly fighting?

Notice how the BIGOT party just keeps getting whiter. A bit of advice for the Commie. When you run for president of Mexico take your Soros cash there don’t campaign in the US.

The racists in the DNC knew that they needed a house Latino so they were grooming him under Obama to build his bona fide’s. He kinda lost cred when it turned out he didn’t speak Spanish. Go figure.
.
I agree – I didn’t even know that he was still running either.

This is horrible news. He alone had the courage to stand up for the rights of men to have abortions. A brave position.

The Friendly Grizzly | January 2, 2020 at 11:30 am

At least he campaigned in English, unlike Rubio.

Well bless your heart! And bless little Joaquin too. Meanwhile you two brothers shouldn’t let the door slap you on the backside on your way out of public life.

Another 1% for the others to fight over in the pursuit to overtake Margin of Error.

He was always running for Vice President or the next MSNBC host. He never could possibly expect to have come within sight of the Presidential nomination.

    “expected”…..expected to have come within sight …..And for his Latin heritage and ties to Texas to have been of value as a VP candidate, he was going to have to have more than 1% in the polls.

      His ties to Texas were not a plus. The Castro boys grew up on the knees of America-hating “Reconquista” Marxist radicals. Most Texans (Anglo and Latino alike) value their liberty and have no interest in becoming part of a corrupt Mexican state or being led by gun grabbing, tax-and-spend progressive scum like this little punk bitch.

        Many do not know that the majority of “latinos” fought along side the other “Texicans” to be FREE from Mexico!

So what happens to the $672,000? Sounds like a nice payday.

    I wonder if the “suspension” rather than ending his campaign allows him more freedom with how to spend the residual funds? Anyone versed in the arcane ins and outs of campaign law? No one ever “ends” their campaign, they always “suspend” and I can’t remember any campaign coming back from a suspension….maybe Gary Hart’s back in the 80’s after the Monkey Business/Donna Rice revelations.

What a loss!

Castro didn’t even meet up to the standards of the Clown Car.

Every time I see that man on TV I check the bottom of my shoes!

He was running for President?

What country?

We can say ‘Adios’ to Julian

Dang, and I was so sure he would get the nomination. In other news, who cares who gets the Dem nomination?

Another Commie down the toilet,now to flush to keep the stink down.
