Julian Castro, whose presidential campaign began to flounder in earnest after he made a dishonest attack on rival candidate Joe Biden’s age, has found himself a new group of voters to offend:
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro is calling for Iowa and New Hampshire to lose their coveted status leading off the presidential nominating calendar, pointing to a lack of diversity in both states.
While his comments risk angering officials — and voters — in both states, they come as he’s already pulled back from New Hampshire amid fundraising and other hurdles for his campaign. In pointed remarks Sunday evening, he said it’s time to “change the order of the states.”
He continued: “I don’t believe we’re the same country we were in 1972. That’s when Iowa first held its caucus first, and by the time we have the next presidential election in 2024, it’ll have been more than 50 years since 1972. Our country’s changed a lot in those 50 years.”
