Julián Castro has announced the termination of his presidential campaign.

The announcement came Thursday morning after the former Housing and Urban Development secretary failed to gain traction in the large field of Democratic candidates. 

Castro shared his news with the public via Twitter: 

Castro's lack of financial viability and standing in the polls are in stark contrast to an announcement from Bernie Sander's camp on the very same morning, stating that the Senator had amassed a total of $34.5 million in funding during the fourth quarter

Throughout the month of December, other Democratic contenders among the 14 candidates have made similar announcements related to the success of their campaigns.
