Rep. Joaquin Castro Won’t Rule Out A Possible 2018 Senate Run

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) didn’t rule out possibly running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2016 while appearing on MSNBC.

“I’ve said I’ll look at it. Texas is hungry for change. They want a senator who’s going to work on behalf of the people in Texas. From his first day in office, Ted Cruz has not spent a single day working on behalf of the people of Texas,” Castro told MSNBC’s, Kate Snow.

Democrats have been trying to turn Texas purple for years. The last time Democrats attempted to mount a competitive statewide election was the 2014 Gubinorail race where liberal hero Wendy Davis lost to Greg Abbot by 20 points.
