From an Elko Basque festival to the Las Vegas storm drains, Castro shoots the moon in Nevada

Julian Castro plans to win Nevada one pupuseria at a time.

Well, make that one pupuseria, some house parties, a trip through the storm drains beneath Las Vegas and a swing through rural Nevada, for good measure.

But on this particularly sweltering August evening it was a pupuseria in West Las Vegas where Castro, the sleeves of his white collared shirt rolled up to his elbows, was rallying and recruiting the troops. Dozens of supporters and the Castro curious squeezed into red vinyl booths, perched on chairs and otherwise packed themselves into the tiny, barely air conditioned restaurant to hear the former Housing and Urban Development secretary make his pitch for why he, and not one of his 19 Democratic competitors, should be president.

I dont want to make our country anything again. I dont want to go backward. I want to go forward. I want to make us greater than weve ever been, Castro said, launching into his biography raised by a single mother in San Antonio with his twin brother, Joaquin, became a lawyer, ran for City Council and mayor, joined President Barack Obamas cabinet and rattling through a list of policy priorities.
