    Castro was one of the most extreme left candidates to me. I liked him early because of his experience but not once I started to learn about his positions.

    Plenty of gender diversity left but outside my favorite, Booker, and zero chance Yang skin tones are all similar.



    Julián Castro ends presidential campaign

    (CNN)Julián Castro ended his presidential campaign on Thursday after the former Housing and Urban Development secretary failed to gain traction in the large field of Democratic candidates.

    Castro announced the news in a video posted on Twitter.

    "I'm so proud of the campaign we've run together. We've shaped the conversation on so many important issues in this races, stood up for the most vulnerable people and given a voice to those who are often forgotten," Castro said. "But with only a month until the Iowa Caucuses, and given the circumstances of this campaign season, I've determined that it simply isn't our time, so today it's with a heavy heart and with profound gratitude that I will suspend my campaign for president."

    Definitely better than the other mayor guy, and the 2 billionaires. Would be a strong VP choice.

    The diversity of the democratic base appears to reject the diverse candidates.
