Julián Castro Campaign Finally Begins Inevitable Downsizing


Despite the recent removal of El Paso native Beto O’Rourke, the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination is still far too crowded to be healthy.

O’Rourke was acting as an “also-ran” for weeks by the time he officially threw in the towel.  His constant rewrites and reinventions seemed desperate and erratic – two characteristics that don’t scream “presidential”.

We also know that Kamala Harris has seen the writing on the wall, and will be laying off staffers who aren’t crucial to her campaign in Iowa.  The Hawkeye State’s caucuses will likely be the race-baiting specialist’s last stand.

The latest to indicate an imminent departure is Julián Castro, whose tepid supporter base seems to be dwindling by the minute.

Longshot Democrat presidential candidate Julián Castro is laying off campaign staff in New Hampshire and South Carolina in order to focus his narrow resources in Iowa and Nevada, according to Politico.

Castro is said to have told staffers in the early primary states that next week would be their last on the campaign. The development comes after Castro issued a fundraising plea to supporters late last month in which he sought $800,000 in donations over 10 days or he would be forced to drop out from the crowded Democrat presidential primary race. After the plea, Castro’s campaign said it raised $1 million for the month.

Although Castro has participated in all four DNC debates, the former San Antonio mayor and Obama-era Housing and Urban Development secretary has failed to gain traction in the polls.

The Democratic top tier, as it stands today, is comprised of Former Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Liz Warren and Bernie Sanders, as well as Indianapolis Mayor Pete Buttigieg.  Outside of this quartet of candidates, no one seems to stand a chance at winning the nomination, unless the unthinkable occurs and Hillary Clinton actually enters the race.
