    It was surely a mere matter of moments.

    Now, on Thursday, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro announced that he is ending his campaign for president in the 2020 Democratic primary.

    "I've determined that it simply isn't our time," Castro said in a video he posted.

    Castro's exit from the race now "leaves the Democratic primary field without a Latino candidate," Politico immediately pointed out.

    "His exit comes one month before the Iowa caucuses," the outlet also noted.

    "The former San Antonio mayor had struggled to gain traction in a crowded primary field."

    And here's how The Los Angeles Times put it: "Castro, 45, was a youthful presence in a contest dominated by a trio of septuagenarians. But lackluster fundraising and low poll ratings left him little choice but to abandon what was an uphill run from the start."
