Thoughts on Julian Castro Ending His Presidential Campaign

As the November 3rd draws closer, the race among the Democratic nominees becomes tighter.

Today, the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro announced that he would be ending his Presidential campaign.

I have mixed feelings about this decision. In a sense, as a voter, I have to respect the process. Not every candidate who throws their hat in the ring will win the nomination. There can only be one nominee representing the party.

But the problem with Mr. Castro, resigning from the race, is that it decreases the chances of a person of color winning the nomination. America has always been a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country. But we have recently embraced and accepted that fact. That includes politics.

Only time will tell who wins the Democratic nomination. My hope is that he or she will fully represent this country, especially those who have been disenfranchised simply because of skin color or family background.
