The Washington Examiner reports:
President Obama’s former Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Julian Castro, will travel to New Hampshire for a speech Tuesday that could mark the beginning of his 2020 presidential campaign. Castro, 43, is slated to headline the New Hampshire Young Democrats 2018 Granite Slate Awards Dinner on Tuesday evening.
“I have every interest in running” in 2020 for president, Castro said, according to a report. “Part of the process of figuring out whether I’m going to run is going to listen to folks and feel the temperature” of voters.
Castro, who was considered for Hillary Clinton’s running mate in 2016, launched the Opportunity First PAC earlier this year and is working on a memoir. He said President Trump’s first year in office partially contributed to his desire to run for commander in chief.
