‘It Simply Isn’t Our Time’ says Julian Castro As He Quits Presidential Race

Julian Castro threw in the towel on his presidential race this morning, one year after he launched his campaign. He had problems of fundraising, and in a glutted field of candidates with higher name recognition, his campaign never really gained traction. Politico: 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. pic.twitter.com/jXQLJa3AdC — Julián Castro (@JulianCastro) January 2, 2020   Castro is the latest candidate of color to end their presidential campaign, following Sen. Kamala Harris’ exit last month, and his departure is sure to revive concerns about diversity in the Democratic primary — he was extremely vocal in criticizing the way minority candidates are covered and treated on the day that Harris dropped out. He also joined every other Democrat in the race in a letter to the DNC last month calling for the debate thresholds to be lowered to allow for more candidates of color on stage. And he’d previously gotten out in front of the field with a call for reshuffling the primary schedule so that it included more diverse states in the beginning of the calendar. “Ganaremos un día!” Castro says at the end of the video, which includes the English translation in a subtitle: “One day we’ll win!” We have had a lot of good candidates in this primary. With the exception of Marianne Williamson and Tulsi Gabbard, I would say that the rest have shown some good possibilities. Unfortunately, this is like the immortals on Highlander, “in the end there can be only one.” Castro was right not to drag it out any longer.
