Julián Castro, the former Mayor of San Antonio and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, announced this morning that he’s exploring a 2020 bid for president:
As a kid growing up on the west side of San Antonio, I never thought that I’d one day be making this announcement: https://t.co/2NAIFEsCFh I’m exploring a candidacy for President of the United States in 2020 to renew the promise of this country for all. https://t.co/9jOBdjHcLO

“Change” is back! From the “Julian for the Future” website:
If we want to see a change, we don’t wait for it, we work toward it. Today, more than ever, we must work together to build an America where everyone—no matter who we are or where we come from—can thrive. Working together, I believe we can build a new promise for ourselves and for our future. I’m exploring a candidacy for President in 2020. Sign up here to get updates.
He’s like Barack Obama, but without the extensive experience:
This dude will actually have less experience than Barack Obama did when he ran.
He wasn't even a real mayor. San Antonio's mayorship is literally an office and ceremonial appearances. They don't actually have any power. https://t.co/2ozBAeMhAT

Although some users are experiencing a little trouble actually navigating to his new webpage. What is it about Obama officials trying to build functioning websites? They’re not very good at it:

Sure. He’s just “exploring” things:
Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Castro says he's "exploring" run for president, but this video looks a lot like a launch video to me.. https://t.co/sU82tI1K6G

And the 2020 race for the White House has begun:
Official launch set for Jan. 12, early in Q1 of 2019
Expect a lot more to get in early next quarter, way ahead of 2016 Dems.
Hillary Clinton got in April 12, Bernie Sanders April 30. https://t.co/xSROkC7ZmN

Well, nap time has begun at the very least:
