How in hell did he expect to win with that last name? Despite the fact that he served as mayor of San Antonio and national Secretary of Housing under Obama, for many voters his last name reminds them of the former Cuban dictator.
Are there other American candidates with similar names out there? For instance, Adelaide Hitler, Josephine Stalin, Jacky Dillinger, Ally Capone, Benita Mussolini, Genghis Cohen, Vivian Zapata and Attila The Honey. Sadly, Castro’s drop out leaves the Democrat group of candidates without a Hispanic representative. http://www.cnn.com/2020/01/02/opinions/julian-castro-dropping-out-is-a-loss-reyes
