OPINION by Dean James at Right Wing Tribune
Money talks- especially if you are running for the presidency.
A few months ago we reported that Cory “Spartacus” Booker’s presidential campaign had turned to begging for money in order to stay in the race.
While most of the Democratic hopefuls are doing fine in the cash department, one candidate is having problems and says he needs $800,000 in order to stay in the race.
That candidate is Julian Castro.
Lol, that dude is a joke. Hell, all of the dems are a joke.
Castro sent out a tweet begging his supporters for cash- check it out:
“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. DONATE now:”

What exactly is he “extremely proud” of?
Standing at the edge of the platform at the Democrat debates looking like a fool?
Jason Hopkins at The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the most recent FEC filings show his campaign only had $672,333 cash on hand at the close of September. His campaign raised $3,495,406 and spent $3,960,970 last quarter. Top-tier Democratic presidential candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, have tens of millions of dollars at their disposal.
A surge of donations, Castro’s campaign says, is needed in order to make it on the next presidential debate stage.
Castro has already reached the 165,000 donor threshold necessary to qualify for the November Democratic debate, but he has not been doing well enough in the polls. DNC rules mandate that qualified candidates must hit at least 3% in four different polls to make it on the November stage. Castro needs more cash to fund campaign activities and raise his profile among Democratic voters.
So far, the beleaguered candidate has barely polled above 1%. The Real Clear Politics aggregate of nationwide surveys shows Castro polling at an average of .8%, a far cry from Joe Biden’s 29.2% or Warren’s 23.4%. A newly-released survey of Iowa voters, who are the first in the nation to hold a presidential primary, showed Castro polling at 0%.
“The truth is, for our campaign, these debates have offered our only guaranteed opportunity to share my vision with the American people. If I can’t make the next debate stage, we cannot sustain a campaign that can make it to Iowa in February,” Castro wrote in an email to supporters. “My presidential campaign is in dire need of financial resources to keep going.”
Castro, who served as the Housing and Urban Development secretary under the Obama administration, has made immigration his signature campaign issue since entering the presidential race.
The former San Antonio mayor wants to decriminalize illegal immigration, including the decriminalization of illegal re-entry, which is a felony under U.S. law. He also pledged, if he’s elected to the White House, he would immediately end President Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico program, which has kept thousands of asylum seekers from entering the U.S. before their claims are processed.
Thank God this lunatic has no chance of winning the election- it would be the end of America as we know it.
Patriots, I can’t empathize how important it is to get out and vote.
We need to destroy the corrupt dems in every election- they are totally out of control!
