HUD Secretary Castro attends Minneapolis event to mobilize Latino voters

A group pushing for higher Latino turnout in elections is hosting HUD Secretary Julian Castro today in Minneapolis. 

Unidos Votamos is holding the event at Plaza Verde, 1516 East Lake St., from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The group says it’s working to “organize our community and increase Latino voter participation in Minnesota and the nation.”

Castro, a former San Antonio mayor, has been mentioned as a possible vice-presidential option for Hillary Clinton.

Also scheduled to attend are: State Sens. Patricia Torres Ray and Melisa Franzen; state Rep. Carlos Mariani; Ramsey County Commissioner Rafael Ortega, Minneapolis City Council Member Alondra Cano and Bloomington School Board member Nelly Korman.

    Considering that xenophobia

    is now officially accepted as part of GOP ideology, and apparently a core tenet of the candidates vying for the nomination of their party, I would think Mr. Castro would have no problem in mobilizing Latino voters to get to the polls
