Democratic presidential hopeful Julian Castro once again resorted to standing on a booster box during Tuesday night’s debate in Westerville, Ohio, hosted by CNN and the New York Times.

Castro, who previously worked as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) could be seen standing on a box next to Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who also stood on a box. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who stood at the opposite end of the debate stage, also stood on a box. (RELATED: ‘Don’t Do That’: Whoopi Goldberg Scolds Castro For Attacks On Biden)

During the most recent debate hosted by ABC in September, Klobuchar and California Sen. Kamala Harris also stood on booster boxes. Gabbard, who did not meet the qualifications set for the second debate, was not present.
