Julian Castro: I'll announce possible presidential run by end of the year

Source: The Hill


BY ARIS FOLLEY - 05/15/18 11:07 AM EDT

Former Obama-era Housing Secretary Julián Castro says he will announce by the end of the year whether he plans to run for president in 2020.

“After November and before the end of the year I will make a decision about my own future,” Castro, 43, said on C-SPAN Tuesday morning. “I’m going to think about it.”




The former mayor of San Antonio said President Trump is taking the country in “the wrong direction.” He said he supports a foreign policy that is less forceful and not “necessarily” based on military power.

Castro, who was once considered as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton in 2016, said Trump is taking the U.S. “backward.”

2. Our Candidates

I hope we get a very strong candidate to win the nomination. From all the names that have been put up already, we might just look like the repubs did in the 2016 primaries.

5. I like the guy as he seems a decent person

but whenever I've seen him on tv with a republican he seemed kind of weak standing his ground and going on the offensive.
Mind you, it's been a while since I've seen him.

Would definitely not be in my top four list.

6. His history in San Antonio is apt to come back and bite him.

Reportedly the reason HRC, who favored him, went another way for her VEEP.

9. He's one of my top picks and glad he's honest about his intentions.

Like the fact that he's focused on Midterms. He's trying to keep attention on the critical first step of taking back Congress.

11. I believe his path to the White House involves a successful US senatorial bid

Oh, and we should keep an eye on Joaquín, too. Like Kudzu, they're going places.
