Former HUD Secretary Julin Castro says he might run for president in 2020

At the 2017 Voto Latino Power Summit in Austin, Texas on Sunday, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro announced he might run for president in 2020, according to Houston Chronicle writer Jeremy Wallace.

“Whoever becomes the Democratic nominee has to stand for the future,” the former HUD secretary for President Barack Obama said, according to Voto Latino’s Twitter. “They have to stand for everything that Trump is not.”

Castro said he would come to a final decision about a possible White House bid by the end of 2018.

In a February op-ed for the Hill, writer Jason Nichols made the case for the former HUD secretary to win the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2020, arguing Castro is a “political prodigy” whose bona fides with the Mexican-American community make him “the perfect person to market himself as the anti-Trump.”
