HUD Secretary Julián Castro Endorses Hillary Clinton


The endorsement comes the same day as a "Latinos for Hillary" rally in San Antonio, Texas, the city where Castro launched his political career and was a popular mayor until joining the Obama administration.

The Castro endorsement is significant, though not necessarily surprising. His twin brother, Congressman Joaquin Castro, recently campaigned for Clinton in Iowa.

Castro said on MSNBC that his endorsement of Clinton, despite Biden waiting in the wings, has more to do with his long relationship with the Clintons.

“There’s no doubt about it: Hillary is the best person to be our 45th president,” Castro writes in the email.

“Hillary has always been a tireless advocate for working families — she’s never ceased to make sure everybody has a fair shot at achieving the American Dream,” he writes.

“Hillary’s the leader I want to see moving into the White House in two years,” he says.

“She hasn’t announced yet that she’s running in 2016, but Hillary needs to know that if she does, millions of grassroots supporters like you will be standing proudly by her side.
