He was mayor of San Antonio from 2009 to 2014 - the youngest mayor of a top-50 American city. He joined the Obama administration as the head of HUD two years later, giving him a national profile and feeding speculation that he might become the running mate of his party's 2016 presidential nominee.

Castro was raised by a local Latina activist. He has always been viewed as a rising star in the Democratic Party since he first landed on the national scene by delivering the keynote speech for President Barack Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
In response to Castro's announcement, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee called Castro one of the "biggest lightweights to ever run for president", saying he was a weak mayor and questioning his tenure as Housing and Urban Development secretary. Distancing himself from President Trump's nasty feuds with the "fake news", Castro told his audience that he and his brother Joaquin were considering a career in journalism before they got into politics, so they respect the work members of the press do. He also said he doesn't plan to accept any PAC money for his campaign.
