“Today, I’m endorsing Senator Elizabeth Warren for President, because she’s going to make sure that everyone has great opportunities to achieve their dreams and get ahead,” Joaquin Castro said. 

“Sen. Warren is going to fight for all of us, including for people who came from neighborhoods like mine,” the San Antonio native added. “That’s why I’m proud to be in this fight with her.”

His endorsement comes the same day as the final Democratic primary debate before Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.

Texas is one of several Super Tuesday states that will hold their nominating contests on March 3.  

The Warren campaign has offices in San Antonio and Austin and said it’s planning to open one in Houston on Friday. 

Julián Castro has been campaigning with Warren across Iowa since endorsing her campaign.
