Julián Castro officially announces 2020 presidential bid

Former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro officially announced his presidential bid in San Antonio on Saturday, beginning a campaign that will look to turn his uniquely American immigrant story into a direct repudiation of President Donald Trump.

"When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, I'm sure she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for President of the United States of America," Castro said.​

I frankly forgot Castro even existed, he hasn't been in the news much lately.

I'd give him approximately zero chance off the top of my head, based on that extremely scientific sample size.

He was trending on twitter all day. No MSM outlet carried his announcement and this forum didn't seem to care about said announcement...
