SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — It’s probably no surprise to anybody who is following the 2020 Presidential race.
Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary and Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro has dropped out.
Castro’s campaign released a video this morning that includes a few minutes his campaign highlights before he announces that he is suspending his campaign for President.
“With only a month until the Iowa caucuses and given the circumstances of this campaign season, I have determined that it simply isn’t our time.”
Castro then says that it is with a heavy heart, he is suspending his campaign.
He then thanks his supporters and says he will continue fighting and working towards a nation where everyone counts, where everyone can get a good job, good health care and a decent place to live.
Castro’s campaign comes to an end after he failed to take part in the most recent Democratic debate and his polling numbers stayed at or below 2 percent.
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
