HUD Chief Julián Castro: 'Not Holding My Breath' on VP Rumors

By    |   Wednesday, 20 May 2015 06:13 PM

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro said that while his name is being floated to be Hillary Clinton's running mate, he's not putting a lot of stock in the rumors.

"I'm certainly flattered by it, but I'm not holding my breath," he told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. "Of course I have seen that talk and think anybody would be flattered by that."

Story continues below video.


Castro's name was mentioned as Clinton's vice presidential pick even before she officially declared her candidacy. In January, the HUD secretary was asked if he would join Clinton's campaign as her vice presidential nominee if asked. He said, "we'll see what happens. There's no grand plan."

Clinton ally and former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, who served under former President Bill Clinton, said that Castro is the top choice to be Clinton's running mate.

"What I am hearing in Washington, including from people in Hillary Clinton’s campaign, is that the first person on their lists is Julián Castro," Cisneros told Univision.

"That they don’t have a second option, because he is the superior candidate considering his record, personality, demeanor, and Latin heritage. I think there is a very high possibility that Hillary Clinton may choose Julián Castro," he added.
