Julián Castro, the former housing secretary and former mayor of San Antonio, announced on Saturday that he would run for president, one of the most high-profile Latino Democrats ever to seek the partys nomination.
His first campaign stop will be in Puerto Rico, where he will speak on Monday at the Latino Victory Funds annual summit and meet with residents still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria. Later in the week, his campaign said, he will go to New Hampshire.
Mr. Castro, in prepared remarks that he was set to deliver in San Antonio on Saturday, said, When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, Im sure she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for president of the United States of America.

And Fox News is covering his LONG announcement speech in San Antonio LIVE right now.
Why not just list the Democrats who AREN’T running. It would be a shorter list.
Dems, castro......How fitting. This assclown is a non starter but at least he may cause some confusion.
Why vote for a fake Latino when you have the real thing.
The illegal alien candidate...
The twin brothers and their mother------she is an organizer of the violent, hate-America La Raza.
God knows how many tax dollars went to La Raza from HUD---a known hot spot for corrupt politicians....
and the other govt jobs the brothers held.
Yeah, but...Beto will get the support of drunk driving Latinos. And that's a huge segment!
I think he’s setting himself up to be the VP nominee. Too many bigger names ahead of him in the 2020 RAT race for president. I know the RATS want that big Hispanic/illegal alien vote. It’s just their higher ups don’t actually want one of them to be president.
Julián Castro....Check this guy out. He looks like a Mayan or an Aztec. He is deep state as in deep Aztec state.
Unlike that white Hispanic boy called Beta O’Rourke. You know, the one who has a wife worth billions via her daddy.
He knows he has zero chance. He’s there to suck up money and resources from other candidates.
For whom? That will reveal itself.
“Why not just list the Democrats who ARENT running. It would be a shorter list.”
I am wondering if the “clown car” manufacturers are working on a stretch limo version?
Any idiot can “run” for President. Castro can get in line with 20+ insignifcant Democrap wannabes. Of course I thought Obozo never had a much of a chance back in 2007, so I am not too certain about ruling out some of the Democraps completely as potential nominees. Beating Trump? That is another matter entirely.... I don’t think there is a serious contender on the horizon for 2020, so long as the economy remains robust (don’t #### it up, Federal Reserve!).
I expect him to alienate the centre. The Latino vote may hurt Democrats chances of election if the Latino's come out for this guy like blacks did BO. But then if he could win he'd certainly open the floodgates for the south to get in at flood stage...and the Dems would love this.
He is running for vice president.
“Latino Victory Fund?” Who is their “victory” against? The Gringos?
Or running for VP. Or setting himself up for 2024 or later. He won’t even be 60 in 2032.
So far there’s 30 rats lined up to proclaim they’ll run. Lots will get $$$$$$ to not run or step down. Cash rules first!
Yawn. Wake me when all the also rans have announced.
Do the Kennedys endorse him? I’m sure they’d be OK having a Castro in the WH.
