Julián Castro, the former housing secretary who was the only Latino candidate in the Democratic primary, said Thursday he would end his bid for the presidency, capping a yearlong campaign where despite struggling in polls, he remained an enduring contender and policy pacesetter on immigration and fighting poverty.

NYT:

“I’ve determined that it simply isn’t our time. Today it’s with a heavy heart, and profound gratitude, that I will suspend my campaign for president. 

I’m not done fighting. I’ll keep working towards a nation where everyone counts, a nation where everyone can get a good job, good health care and a decent place to live.”

-Julián Castro
