Why Are They Ignoring Julian Castro?

If you are a Democratic Party voter, and you are interested in finding out about the candidates running for your party’s nomination and you say to yourself…
“But, I thought that a Latino was running? Am I wrong?”

No, you are not wrong. You aren’t imagining things.There has been a brownout of coverage of Julian Castro.

While we see every White Democrat and not even Democrats being given oodles of press…there has been a deliberate attempt to stifle Mr. Castro.

The endless fluffing of Mayor Pete, who was the Mayor of a town less than 150,000 people, while Julian Castro was the Mayor of a town of 1.4 million people before going into serving in the Obama Administration.

1.4 million vs less than 150,000

Uh huh
Uh huh

While Julian Castro is out here serving up actual policy positions….

We just get the White Male candidates being fluffed just for existing.

But, we see 👀 👀 you, Julian Castro.
We are you and appreciate all that you bring to the table.


 This is being noticed.

I agree 💯 with @kwameinc
We are at a diversity inflection point and I don’t believe we need an old white man to save us from Trump.

Women and minorities are the engine of the Democratic Party and leadership should reflect that.

While he made it onto the stage, please give so that we can keep him, and his voice, on that stage.

    So let’s see..

    My response to Saletan’s tweet about his erasure of ‘red state” Democrat Castro and calling it out is divisive.

    yet your response that Castro has not “criss-crossed” the country like Pete has (which is a lie) is not divisive?

    Just stop it. https://t.co/hmtk6Yf8Ov https://twitter.com/MonieTalks_1/status/1115289159047045126?s=17

    Actually Castro has visited as many places at Buttigieg has. IA, HH, NV, SC to name a few.

    He pledged to visit all 50 states while announcing his candidacy. He visited 40 states while HUD Secretary.

    Your sentiment about him not criss crossing proves my point about erasure. https://t.co/P7MLsB33p6 https://twitter.com/MonieTalks_1/status/1115281287105994752?s=17
