Former housing secretary says he’s in 2020 race
Julián Castro, former housing secretary and former mayor of San Antonio, announced Saturday he would run for president, one of the most high-profile Latino Democrats ever to seek the party’s nomination.
His first campaign stop will be in Puerto Rico, where he will speak Monday at the Latino Victory Fund’s annual summit and meet with residents still recovering from Hurricane Maria. Then he’ll go to New Hampshire.
He joins Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland as Democrats who have announced.
