Castro Says He's Still in the Race

Democratic Presidential Candidates Participate In First Debate Of 2020 Election Over Two Nights

Julian Castro won't be participating in next Wednesday's Democratic presidential debate, but he's not dropping out of the race.

The former mayor of San Antonio failed to meet the minimum polling threshold set by the Democratic National Committee to qualify for the fifth debate in Atlanta on November 20th.

Castro is still campaigning in the early voting states of Iowa and Nevada, as well as his home state of Texas.

Of the 12 candidates in last month's debate, only Castro and fellow Texan Beto O'Rourke won't be back for this month's event. O'Rourke dropped out of the race two weeks ago.
