Castro is not resonating as a presidential contender.
Former HUD secretary Julián Castro’s long-shot Democratic presidential ambitions are fizzling fast, as he failed to qualify for the debate that is scheduled to take place later in the month.
This comes following an announcement from the Castro campaign that they would not be able to continue their campaign into primary season unless they qualified for this debate. Now that he has failed to do so, the campaign is all but doomed.
“The truth is, for our campaign, these debates have offered our only guaranteed opportunity to share my vision with the American people. If I can’t make the next debate stage, we cannot sustain a campaign that can make it to Iowa in February,” his campaign wrote to its supporters last month.
The candidates who have qualified for the debate that is scheduled to take place on Nov. 20 in Georgia include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Cory Booker, Billionaire Tom Steyer, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Castro will not be among them.
Castro has attempted to gain a following by making wild statements to establish himself as the most left-wing individual in the field. He has argued for reparations for slavery in a pathetic attempt to reach out to minority voters.
He has also shown a willingness to excuse violent crimes from illegal aliens, as he calls for amnesty and the flooding of the U.S. southern border with the refuse of the third world.
“Let me begin the answer to that question by saying – look – all of us know as human beings, regardless of circumstance, whether people are rich or poor, no matter the color of their skin, what their background is, people commit crime: crime happens,” Castro said at a Fox News town hall in June.
His brother, Joaquin, a U.S. Congressman from Texas, even doxxed Trump supporters this summer in the hopes that they would be targeted by violent left-wing extremists such as ANTIFA.
