Rep. Joa­quin Castro’s (D-20) “po­ten­tial run for sen­at­or was the top­ic of the first ques­tion asked at the rally with an over­flow crowd of about 100 Sat­urday” dur­ing his vis­it to El Paso, TX.

“We need a sen­at­or that works for Texas. Ted Cruz works for Ted Cruz,” Castro said, adding that he will an­nounce his de­cision at the end of April.

“It’s not about me or about any one of us but about the dir­ec­tion of this state and the dir­ec­tion of this coun­try,” Castro said.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-16) is also con­tem­plat­ing a Cruz chal­lenge. (El Paso Times)
