Julián Castro Announces 2020 Presidential Run

Former HUD Secretary and San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro has officially entered the 2020 race.

Castro made the announcement in San Antonio today, saying, “We’re going to make sure that the promise of America is available to everyone in the 21st century.”

“When my grandmother got here almost 100 years ago,” he said, “I am sure she never could have imagined that two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing here with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for President of the United States of America.”

You can watch above, via C-SPAN.
