A former high-ranking Democrat official in President Barack H. Obama’s administration is forming an exploratory committee to consider running for president in 2020.
“Former Obama housing chief Julian Castro says he’s taking a step toward a possible White House campaign in 2020 by forming a presidential exploratory committee. The Texas Democrat tells The Associated Press that he will announce a decision Jan. 12,” according to Associated Press.
Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, was Obama’s United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Exploratory committees are the first formal step in running for president, allowing a potential candidate to raise money. Castro told Rolling Stone in October that he is “likely” to run for president in 2020.
If he enters the race, he will likely be fighting through a crowded field of Democrats for the party’s nomination. Early speculation shows former Vice President Joe Biden polling well, along with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who ran a very successful race in 2016. Upstart State Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-Texas) is also polling well, despite spending nearly $80 million in a midterm Senate race and losing to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) are also considering presidential runs.
Castro is aware of his potential competition.
“It doesn’t bother me that in December of 2018 I’m not right up at the top of the list,” he reportedly said. “If I decide to run, it would be because I believe I have a compelling message and I’m going to work hard and get to the voters and I believe I can be successful.”

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Four Georgia Poll Workers Appear to Pull Out and Count Suitcases of Ballots Hidden Under Table AFTER Sending Poll Watchers Home
Stunning footage from the Peach State.
Shocking footage from Thursday’s Georgia Senate Hearing on Election Integrity appears to show poll workers pulling out and counting suitcases of ballots hidden under a table after everyone else had been sent home for the night.
The footage was caught on security camera at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Poll workers cleared the room around 10:30pm, with Republican poll watchers and a Fox News crew being the last to leave. Those who left were under the impression that counting was finished for the night and that they could return at 8:30am the next day, according to sworn affidavits.
Four poll workers, however, stayed behind. At 11:00pm, after a half-hour of sitting and biding time, they can be seen pulling out four suitcases containing uncounted ballots from underneath a table. The table in question was placed there at 8:22am on Election Day by a woman wearing her blonde hair in braids—the same woman who told everyone to leave at 10:30pm.

Two witnesses actually found out from the press a couple hours later that the four poll workers had not left and were still counting. They returned to State Farm Arena between 1:30 and 1:45am, though the poll workers had completed counting and scanning those hidden ballots around 1:00am.
Interestingly enough, State Farm Arena was also the place where the false flag “burst pipe” occurred.
