As Hillary Clinton campaigns for the Democratic nomination for president she is fighting against the appearance of inevitability.

However, she holds approximately 60 percent support among Democratic voters in primary polls and despite the efforts of other candidates like Senator Bernie Sanders it’s easy to assume Clinton’s nomination is a chinch. So much so that there’s been speculation for several years over her Vice Presidential running mate. Former San Antonio Mayor and HUD secretary Julian Castro is being touted as the guy at the top of that short list.

But Politico reporter Gabriel Debenedetti writes that Castro’s supporters could be pushing too hard and thus actually hurting Castro’s chances.
