SO LONG! Julian Castro Ends His Pointless 2020 Campaign For President

No big surprises here.

Far left Democrat Julian Castro has ended his 2020 campaign for president. It became pretty clear that this is where things were headed months ago, but it finally came to a close this week.

‘It simply isn’t our time’: Julián Castro ends presidential bid

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro announced Thursday he is ending his campaign for president.

“I’ve determined that it simply isn’t our time,” Castro said in a video, citing “the circumstances of this campaign season.”

In a tweet announcing his decision, he added: “It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today. I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight.”

Castro ending his bid leaves the Democratic primary field without a Latino candidate, and his exit comes one month before the Iowa caucuses.

The Obama-era housing secretary and former mayor of San Antonio launched his campaign last January but struggled to gain traction in the crowded Democratic field.

His only notable congressional endorsements came from his brother, campaign chairman and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Joaquin Castro, as well as freshman Texas Rep. Colin Allred, who worked for Castro at HUD and received early backing from Castro during his 2018 race.

The Democrat field is getting less diverse and people are starting to notice.

Don’t shed any tears for Castro.

Never forget that he defended his brother for targeting Trump donors.
