Julian Castro seemed really promising until the third Democratic debate. He has a solid and detailed plan for immigration reform that most other candidates lack. He also supports radical changes to government departments and programs that most candidates are not advocating for, such as the severe reform of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the reform of the Housing and Urban Development department. He’s a young, fresh face compared to the candidates voters already know and have opinions about. However, an attack on Biden’s poor memory and a hint that it was due to his age during the September debate wasn’t well received by viewers or the media—it may have been a complete backfire for his campaign.
