Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Julian Castro, continues to inch closer to a possible 2020 presidential run, as the twin brother of Rep. Joaquin Castro (D) has announced that he will be making a ‘historic’ announcement about his plans on January 12.
In late 2018, Castro’s brother Joaquin confirmed to Hispolitica that his brother was truly contemplating a presidential run.
Secretary Castro posted a video announcing that he will be making a “special announcement” at Plaza Guadalupe in San Antonio, Texas, the predominantly Hispanic neighborhood he grew up with.
Castro equated the Guadalupe neighborhood to Little Havana in Miami, to Chicago’s Pilson area, and to East Los Angeles, all Hispanic and Spanish-speaking neighborhoods.
It’s a neighborhood of a lot of history. So, on January 12th, let’s make a little bit more.-Julian Castro
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) has already announced her presidential intentions on New Year’s Eve day, becoming the first of possibly two dozen Democratic presidential candidates willing to challenge President Donald Trump.
Julian Castro could be the second Democrat to toss his hat into the presidential sweepstakes.
