Julian Castro drops out of 2020 presidential race

Julian Castro, the former Obama housing secretary, and San Antonio mayor, has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Castro had been struggling to raise money and fight his way back onto the debate stage.

“It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today,” he tweeted. “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 had stalled for most of his campaign around 1 percent in polls and entered October low on money. Castro, 45, was among the youngest in the running but was previously eclipsed by another Texan in the race who dropped out this fall, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, and another young former mayor, Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.
