nearvideo-Julian Castro defends challenging Joe Biden on the debate stage
Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro joins Peter Doocy on ‘Fox News @ Night” after the third presidential debate in Houston.
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J., expressed solidarity with the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro for his controversial attack against the former Vice President and 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden.
“I think we are at a difficult point, because there are a lot of people are concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling,” Booker said, when asked about Castro’s remarks after the debate. “And I think that Castro really had legitimate concerns, can be to call the he has someone in a long, grueling campaign… and every right.”
“Do you think that Biden did a better job tonight?” CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked. “Do you think he showed that he could take the ball over the line?”
“I think there are so many moments where a number of us were on the search, on the stage, when he tends to go, sometimes,” Booker responds. “At one point, he talked about communities as I listen to the record player. I can’t remember the last time I saw a record player… But there are definitely moments where you will hear Joe Biden, and you just wonder…”

“Senator, you are saying that he is simply too old to be President?” CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash is not responding.
“No, I’m not definitely say because I’ve listened to Joe Biden over the years and often felt like there were times that he goes, or meanders, in his speech,” Booker said. “I want someone who can excite and energy and you give us a call for a campaign, as we saw, back in ’08, in ’12, where we saw a record turnout, and someone who can speak to the fullness of the Democratic party. If I believed that Joe Biden was that person, I would not be sitting here.”

During a fiery exchange, Castro took a shot at Biden’s memory, accusing him of contradicting himself about whether to buy the Americans in a public health care option in his plan, or, if you are automatically enrolled.
“I can not believe that you said two minutes ago, to buy the you had and now you are saying you do not have to buy,” Castro. “You forget that!”
