Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro has opted to endorse Senator Elizabeth Warren for President of the United States. Castro made the announcement public on Monday morning with a video on Twitter.
In the video’s caption, he writes, “Elizabeth and I share a vision of America where everyone counts. An America where people?—not the wealthy or well-connected?—are put first. I’m proud to join her in the fight for big, structural change.”
During the video, he states, “There’s one candidate I see who’s unafraid to fight like hell to make sure America’s promise will be there for everyone.”
Today I'm proud to endorse @ewarren for president.

The news comes just days after the former Mayor of San Antonio announced that he would end his bid for the Oval Office.
With just a week until the next debate in Des Moines, Iowa, this will give a much needed boost to Warren’s campaign. Towards the end of the 2019 fiscal year, Warren experienced a slight dip in fundraising. Still, she remains in contention for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination alongside Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and many others.
