Julian Castro’s Campaign Takes Another Nosedive

A significant turning point in the 2020 presidential election is here. Certain candidates are realizing that their campaigns are either going to persist or flatline. At this time, multiple 2020 Democrats have already dropped out of the race. Other low-polling candidates, such as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and now Julian Castro are making moves which indicate that they won’t be in this race for much longer.

Last month, Castro warned of low campaign finances and stated that if he didn’t raise at least $800,000 in less than two weeks, he’d have to quit his run for the White House. Although Castro managed to garner the aforementioned funds and therefore persist as a Democrat candidate, he’s still struggling.

Reports from Breitbart News confirm that Castro is giving the boot to staffers as his campaign resources continue to dwindle.

The Latest on the Failing Castro 2020 Campaign

Not everyone is destined to become the next president of the United States. Since Castro’s time as a 2020 presidential candidate, he has consistently trailed behind other contenders. As a matter of fact, the Democrat’s campaign is coming along so poorly that the majority of press coverage which he’s gotten has dealt with his low funds and declining resources.

In the wake of this, Castro is cutting his losses by laying off staffers in South Carolina and New Campsite. This decision comes as Castro looks to revive what’s left of his campaign and build new momentum in Nevada and Iowa. News of this latest blow to the Castro 2020 campaign comes shortly after reports of fellow rival Kamala Harris also letting go of her own staffers and attempting to regroup in Iowa.

A Race to the Bottom

The vast majority of 2020 Democrats are merely in a race to the bottom. At this point in the game, it’s only a matter of time before Castro drops out of the race. Having to cut staffers and barely treading water in the polls are both two, clear signs of a failed campaign.

Like many of his in-party rivals, Castro has spent a lot of time censuring President Trump, accusing him of racism, etc. If Castro spent more time focusing on his own campaign and cutting back on the extreme, radical leftism, he might be in a slightly better position than his current predicament. Right now, the 2020 Democrat’s wisest course of action would be to cut his losses and simply announce his departure from the current presidential election.
