Crowd Boos Julian Castro for Refusing to Hold Baby

'I don't want to give the baby a cold'

Democratic presidential hopeful Julian Castro said he did not want to hold a voter's baby, prompting boos from the crowd during an appearance at NetRoots Nation this past weekend. He cited a desire to protect the infant's health, saying he wasn't a "typical politician" and he had been "shaking a million hands."
