Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Julian Castro, former secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Obama administration and former San Antonio mayor, has never risen out of the lowest tier of candidates in the broad field of Democrats seeking the White House.
Castro is now cautioning his supporters that he will soon be forced to end his presidential campaign if he is unable to raise approximately $800,000 in donations by the end of the month, according to Breitbart.
Castro pleads for donations
Castro’s announcement came via Twitter on Monday when he posted a campaign ad along with a donation link and this desperate plea: “I’m extremely proud of the historic and bold campaign we have built together. But this is a critical moment — if my campaign can’t raise $800,000 by October 31st, my campaign will be silenced for good. Help us keep up the fight.”
Unfortunately for him, more than 24 hours after that special request was first posted, his message had only received a few thousand likes and retweets.
The lackluster response likely indicates that he will fail to reach his desired goal — though, there is always a chance that things could change over the next several days.
Desperation worked for Cory Booker
Breitbart noted that Castro’s gambit appears awfully similar to that of fellow 2020 Democratic candidate and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who near the end of September — the end of the important third fiscal quarter — similarly appealed to his supporters to make last-minute donations to his campaign or else he, too, would be forced to drop out of the race.
That appeared to have worked for Booker, as he had requested $1.7 million in donations and ultimately brought in just over $1.78 million over the 10-day period.
Whether Castro experiences the same sort of windfall as Booker received remains to be seen, however.
Always an also-ran
Castro launched his presidential campaign in January, and it was a long-shot from the start. In truth, Castro never really had a chance at winning the party’s nomination.
Instead, his campaign always appeared to be little more than a set-up for him to potentially be included as a vice-presidential candidate on another candidate’s ticket — likely with a goal of appealing to Hispanic voters — or to perhaps be named to another, arguably more important Cabinet-level position in somebody else’s administration.
Indeed, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Castro is currently sitting at 0.7% support, and he has never risen higher than about 1.7% percent over the entire course of his campaign.
Castro may end up successfully raising the $800,000 he claims he needs by the end of the month to keep his floundering campaign afloat. In reality, however, all he and his donors will be doing is prolonging the inevitable demise of his unlikely bid for the White House.

Rodan y Fields suena como una compañía cuyo principal objetivo es vender el producto y la parte de hacer dinero, desde la perspectiva de las compañías es secundaria. ¿Es esa la lectura que tienes de esto? Suena como si la mayoría de la gente que está asociada con esta compañía no está satisfecha.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!|
