Castro Says He'll Exit Race Oct 31 if Fundraising Target Isn't Met

Former Mayor Julian Castro is again talking about ending his increasingly longshot Presidential bid, News Radio 1200 WOAI report.

Castro said today if his campaign can't raise $800,000 by October 31, as he put it, 'my campaign will be silenced for good.'

Castro has already said if he doesn't make the much more stringent requirements to get into the November debate, he will withdraw from the race.

"I'm 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,' Castro wrote in a fundraising appeal.

Castro has struggled to get traction ever since beginning his campaign at a west side venue in January. He has generally been around the 1% to 2% level in most polls. In the latest poll in the early decision state of Iowa, Castro is listed as the 'other candidates' who didn't come up to the 3% level of Tom Steyer, who is the lowest named candidate in the poll.
