CASTRO QUITS: Julian Castro Drops Out of 2020 Race for the White House

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.02.20

Former Housing Secretary and Mayor of San Antonio Julio Castro dropped out of the 2020 race for the White House Thursday morning; confirming he was “suspending his campaign” after hovering at 1 percent in recent polls.

“It’s with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today. I’m so proud of everything we’ve accomplished together. I’m going to keep fighting for an America where everyone counts—I hope you’ll join me in that fight,” posted Castro on social media.

 

“Castro failed to make the stage in the last two debates and was almost certain to be shut out of the January debate as well,” reports Fox News. “He recently pulled out his small staffs from the early-voting states of New Hampshire and South Carolina in order to focus on Iowa and Nevada, as well as his home state of Texas.”

BERNIE'S UNHAPPY MEAL! Sanders TARGETS McDONALD’S, Says Company Must Pay Workers $15 an Hour

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.23.19

After setting his sights on Walmart, Amazon, and Google, Vermont Senator and 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders is now targeting McDonalds; saying the global burger chain must pay its workers at least $15 an hour across the USA.

“If Amazon can raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour, there is no reason that McDonald’s—a company that took in $1.4 billion in profit and paid its CEO $22 million—can’t also pay its workers a living wage,” posted Sanders on social media.

“In my view, if McDonald’s has enough money to buy back $22 billion of its own stock, it damn well has enough money to pay all of its workers at least $15 an hour,” he added.

A handful of Democratic candidates echoed Sanders’ demands Thursday; supporting a nationwide strike by McDonald’s workers.

“Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio(D) joined striking employees around the country, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who had to remain in Washington, D.C., to vote for a disaster relief bill, addressed the striking workers via a live town hall and pledged to sign legislation as president to raise the minimum wage and strengthen worker protections,” writes The Hill.

“Today, we live in the wealthiest country in the history of the world. But tens of millions of workers don’t know that, because they’re working longer hours for low wages,” Sanders said during the town hall. “Does anybody think that that is moral, or that is right?”

“I’m proud to march alongside @McDonalds workers in Durham, NC this morning striking for fairer wages, better conditions, and the right to unionize. I’m going to join workers anywhere they’re fighting for a living wage and safe working conditions,” posted Julian Castro on Twitter.

BIDEN IN TROUBLE: Latest Poll Shows BERNIE SANDERS Now in First Place in New Hampshire

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.13.19

Recent polling from New Hampshire could spell big trouble for former Vice President Joe Biden, with new data showing Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders taking the lead in the pivotal primary state.

“Gravis Marketing has released its first 2020 New Hampshire Democratic Primary poll and finds Sen. Bernie Sanders sitting atop the Democratic Primary field with 21% of the vote.  Former Vice President Joe Biden took second place with 15% of New Hampshire Democratic primary goers supporting him. Behind Sanders and Biden, Sen. Warren is at 12% respectfully followed by Mayor Buttigieg with 8%, Sen. Kamala Harris at 7%, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard at 5%, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer each with 4%, and Rep. Julian Castro and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke at 2%,” reports the Polling Firm.

“It is important to note that Sen. Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary in 2016,” Doug Kaplan, President of Gravis Marketing stated. “However, it is unlikely that Sen. Sanders will have a repeat of his 2016 performance in the state due to the number of candidates in the race this time.”

Other polls show Sen. Sanders and Elizabeth closing the gap with Biden in Iowa, California, and Nevada.

President Trump called-out Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden from the White House lawn Friday afternoon; saying the former Vice President was “not playing with a full deck.”

“Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “He made that comment and I said ‘whoa.'”

“This is not somebody you can have as your president, but if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled,” he said.

“Trump has delighted in making fun of Biden for what he sees as Biden’s declining mental capacity. Earlier this week, responding to Biden comparing his rhetoric to that of former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, Trump said that Biden has ‘truly lost his fastball, that I can tell you,’” reports Fox News.

“They call anyone a racist that when they run out of cards…they’ve got candidates,” he said. “Joe Biden can’t answer a simple question, something’s going wrong with him.”

“A lot of people think he’s the one who wanted Bob Mueller to testify,” Trump said. “Because it made Joe look intelligent.”
