Obama to tap San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro as HUD secretary

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama will announce plans Friday to nominate San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to be his next secretary of Housing and Urban Development, a government source said.

The 39-year old, three-term mayor first gained national recognition when he delivered the keynote address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention - the first Hispanic to do so.

    An outstanding choice for Sec. of HUD. Mayor Castro has done an excellent job as mayor of San Antonio and is a rising star in Democratic politics here in Texas. He will serve both President Obama and the country with distinction.

    Maybe Mr. Castro can try and spend another $200M on a useless streetcar to nowhere like he is trying San Antonio against the tax payers wishes.
