President Barack Obama's expected nomination of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro as secretary of Housing and Urban Development could test the 39-year-old's ability to navigate Washington ahead of 2016 elections, Texas Democrats say.
Former President Bill Clinton came to Texas to help honor Henry Cisneros, a former San Antonio mayor who served as housing secretary in the Clinton administration.
After the meeting, Mr. Cisneros said he advised Mr. Castro to accept a post in the Obama administration.
"I thought that if he was going to be vice-presidential material in 2016, then he needed to be more than mayor at that time," Mr. Cisneros said at the time.
