BREAKING: Julián Castro makes history to meet the donor threshold for the next Presidential Debates.

Sign on to show your support for this historic campaign for President >>

Hours ago, I became one of the few candidates to officially meet the donor qualifications for the next Presidential debates.


I know many folks underestimated us, but you helped me prove them all wrong.
 

 

I was never supposed to be a frontrunner in this presidential race.

I was never supposed to make the cut for the debate stage.

People who grew up where I did — who were raised by single moms like I was — who come from a family of immigrants like I do — we were told to set our sights lower.

But you just helped me make history and prove them all wrong.

Because I just became one of the handful of candidates to reach the 130,000-donor requirement for the next Presidential Debates.

 

Serving in President Obama’s cabinet was one of the greatest honors of my life.

We fought for justice. We worked to improve lives. We strived to make this a country where people could live with dignity.

But watching Trump rip our progress to shreds has been the most infuriating spectacle I’ve ever witnessed.

I can’t wait to get onto that debate stage and defend President Obama and the progress we made — and it’s all because of you.

So I’m humbly asking: Can I count on you to add your name before midnight and show your support for my campaign? So many underestimated us, but we just showed the world what a real grassroots movement looks like. >>

When the establishment said I was a longshot…

When the press didn’t give me a fair shot…

When the far right said no one like me could ever be President…

You believed in me, and you had my back. You have no idea how much that means.

Thank you for believing that a kid from the West Side of San Antonio could get to the Democratic debate stage and share my vision with America.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my story and earn your trust. And if you’re still reading this, I hope I’ve also earned your signature. So I’m humbly asking one last time: Will you sign your name before midnight? >>

 

Thank you,

 

Julián

No one like Julián Castro has ever been in the Oval Office. His grandmother immigrated here from Mexico when she was just 7 years old. She never got past the 4th grade, but she provided for her family by working as a maid and a housekeeper.

Now, her grandson is running for President of the United States. Against all odds, grassroots Democrats like YOU helped him qualify for the first debates and send him to the front of the pack of Democratic candidates.

We know we send you a lot of emails, but that’s because we’re relying on grassroots supporters to overcome our next big challenge:

Julián must reach 130,000 donors this summer to secure his spot on the Democratic debate stage.

Julián hasn’t qualified yet, and he’s not taking a cent of corporate PAC money. Will you help him get there?

DONATE


Again, we know we send you a lot of emails. We hope you’ll stick with us long-term.
