  • Julian Castro To Announce 2020 Presidential Bid Saturday

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro is set to formally launch his bid for president on Saturday, after weeks of hinting he was ready to join the growing 2020 Democratic primary field.

Mr Castro, 44, the grandson of a Mexican immigrant who would be the first Hispanic elected president, served as secretary of Housing and Urban Development under former President Barack Obama and has always been viewed as a rising star in the party. She has faced criticism for meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and supporting his regime, as well as appearing on Fox News to criticize Obama for not using the phrase "radical Islam". Because it's time for new energy. "Because we're going to make sure that the promise of America is there for everyone".

"And the opportunities that made America, America are reaching fewer and fewer people", he said, flanked by his wife Erica and children Carina and Cristian in San Antonio's Plaza Guadalupe, among a crowd of a couple hundred people.

He used his launch to repeat support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Castro was raised by a local Latina activist. "Yeah, we have to have border security", he said.

At his announcement rally he said, "There is a crisis today ..." Former U.S. Representative John Delaney has been running for more than a year.

GM wants to turn Cadillac into its premium electric-vehicle brand
General Motors has picked Cadillac to lead its electric vehicle strategy, sources have told Reuters . Cadillac has also been doing very well in China, with sales rising 17.2 per cent in 2018.

Joining him in the race is Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who announced her candidacy on Friday.

Castro, the former San Antonio mayor, first took the national stage after delivering the keynote speech for President Barack Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Moderates and progressives in the party have been debating about how to best challenge Trump, the likely Republican nominee.

Some Democrats believe an establishment figure who can appeal to centrist voters is the way to win back the White House. Others contend a fresh face is needed to energize the party's increasingly left-leaning base. He was also famously considered a frontrunner to be former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016, but she ultimately went with Senator Tim Kaine.

Correspondents say Mr Castro does not have widespread name recognition and may struggle to make an impression in a crowded field.

"I know that the press work hard and that they are the friend of the truth in this country", Castro told the media at his event. "That said, his star is definitely not rising anymore, and the sun may be setting on the presidential ambitions of Julian Castro". He also stressed the value of hard work, which he said he and his twin brother, Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-Texas), learned from their immigrant grandmother and their single mother. Joaquin Castro's position on the House Intelligence Committee has made him a frequent public critic of the president.
