Clinton Picks Up Key Endorsement in Texas

1024x1024On Thursday, Hillary Rodham Clinton began her first trip to Texas as a presidential candidate with a Q&A session in San Antonio. The session was hosted by Javier Palomarez, the president of the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Clinton was asked a number of questions about her immigration and business plans, but she was also asked about the possibility of Housing and Urban Development Secretary, and former mayor of San Antonio, Julián Castro as a running mate. Clinton responded coyly saying, “I am going to really look hard at him for anything because that’s how good he is, and he deserves the accolades he’s receiving.”

Clinton then attended a Latinos for Hillary event in San Antonio where she was endorsed by Castro. The two appeared on stage together at Sunset Station where thousands turned out to listen hear Clinton speak. She focused heavily on immigration reform saying that she would defend the executive orders that have been enacted by President Barack Obama, and she would stand up against Congress if they passed legislation that led to the deportation of DREAMers. Clinton told the crowd, which consisted primarily of Latinos, “You’re not strangers, you’re not intruders. You’re our neighbors, you’re our friends, you’re our families. A video from the San Antonio rally is below.

Tonight, Clinton attended a private fundraiser at the home of Amber and Steven Mostyn. Both are lawyers with Mostyn Law. As with all private events, it was closed to the press.

Tomorrow, Clinton is scheduled to return to New Hampshire and will also appear on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
