Julian Castro ends campaign for president

It’s the second day of the new year and we’ve already got a candidate for president dropping out of the race. Julian Castro, who served under President Obama as the United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and before that, mayor of San Antonio, has ended his bid for the Democratic nominee.

“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,” he tweeted.

That leaves fourteen candidates still in the race: Michael Bennett, Joe Biden, Tulsi Gabbard, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Marianne Williamson, John Delaney, Amy Klobuchar, Deval Patrick, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, and Andrew Yang.

Iowa starts caucusing in a little over one month and the next debate will take place on January 14, 2020.
