“......Expect there to be plenty about growing up with twin brother Joaquin on San Antonio’s west side, the Harvard-educated sons of well-known La Raza leader Rosie Castro, a firebrand matriarch of the political family. Joaquin, a Texas legislator, was elected this month to a seat in Congress. As for Julian, he says he intends to run for reelection as mayor. But some Democrats see him as a future star of the party — a future candidate for governor and, possibly, president some day.

Castro’s speech to the national convention inevitably attracted comparisons with Barack Obama, whose national profile was launched with a speech to the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Obama wrote an autobiography, Dreams From My Father, when he was 33. Thirteen years later, he was president.

As for Julian Castro, political junkies in Texas are looking forward to the prospects that he could run for governor in 2018 or 2022. The dream matchup would be Castro against George P. Bush, son of former Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush. (George P has filed papers in Austin in preparation to run for office, probably state land commissioner in two years) Whatever happens, it looks like Bush and Castro are in Texas’ political future. How about this: an all-Texas showdown between the two as the Republican and Democratic nominees for president 2024?”

His twin brother has already announced that he[not mayor] will run against Ted Cruz in 2018.

The most ignorant electorate on the planet will no doubt want a Brown Communist next time, since the Black Communist is working out so well. Just keep working so the IRS can churn out the cash for the Dems to buy votes with and they can prove once again how inclusive they are....to everyone but White, middle class conservative Christians, that is.
