I’ve got some big news — this morning my campaign announced that we have now received more than 30 endorsements from elected and appointed officials from across Texas!
“This is a critical moment in our nation’s political history,” said former San Antonio Mayor and HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. “These times demand a candidate with the vision of an executive, the heart of a powerful personal story and a successful track record of not just talking about bold policy, but delivering results. As Mayor of the nation’s seventh-largest city and a Cabinet Secretary of a complex agency that touches Americans at every level along the economic spectrum, Julián Castro has proven himself at every step of the way, which is why he’s my choice to be the next President of the United States.”
From State Representatives to County Judges, from members of Congress to a former Cabinet Secretary, our campaign is quickly picking up support all across my home state. I’ve spent much of my life campaigning with Texas Democrats up and down the ballot, and I’m humbled by the support of so many outstanding colleagues.
My home state has been ignored by presidential campaigns for decades. But in my campaign, everyone counts. I know with your support, too, we can win Texas’s 38 electoral votes in November of 2020.
