President to Pick San Antonio Mayor to Cabinet Position

WASHINGTON, D.C.- President Barack Obama is expected to nominate San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro as the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

The 39-year-old is a rising star in the Democratic party, ever since giving the 2012 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.

Castro has been mentioned several times as a possible vice presidential candidate.

If Julian Castro is nominated, and that nomination is confirmed, he would become one of the highest-ranking Hispanic officials in the Obama administration.
