Julián Castro Ends Presidential Bid
Castro was formerly the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and the mayor of San Antonio.
Julián Castro is ending his presidential bid. He made the announcement in a campaign video Thursday.
Castro said in the announcement: "We've shaped the conversation on so many important issues in this race, stood up for the most vulnerable people, and given a voice to those who are often forgotten. But with only a month until the Iowa caucuses, and given the circumstances of this campaign season, I've determined that it simply isn't our time."
Castro rarely polled above 2% support during his yearlong run. His low numbers disqualified him from the November and December debates, despite meeting the donation criteria.
Castro — who served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama — was the only Latino candidate running in the Democratic primary.
The New York Times notes that Castro's appeal to Latino voters could make him a strong vice presidential pick for the Democratic nominee.
