6 monthes ago   |   By Politico

Julián Castro, the lowest-polling candidate in the Democratic debate Thursday night, reached up the ladder and tried to yank Joe Biden off it. Castro's decision to attack the former vice president and 2020 front-runner, in a way that appeared designed to highlight Biden's advancing age, was a high-stakes move at a time when the former Housing and Urban Development secretary needs a big boost of momentum to change the trajectory of his campaign.
