(Julián Castro dropped out of the race on 1/2/20) Julián Castro served as the 16th Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama from 2014-2017. Castro previously served as the mayor of San Antonio, Texas from 2009 to 2014 and delivered the keynote address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. He has an identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro (D-TX), who has now grown a beard to help us tell them apart, but honestly if he wins, how will we know who is ACTUALLY running the country? He (and his brother) graduated with a B.A. from Stanford University and J.D. from Harvard University. Learn more about Secretary Castro (not to be confused with Representative Castro) below:
