When voters hit the polls in five months, many will have police reform on their minds.

Former presidential candidate Julián Castro made the issue a cornerstone of his campaign — and now presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is tapping Castro to help shape his police reform platform.

From Texas Standard:

Massachusetts Sen. and former University of Texas law professor, Elizabeth Warren, is among the Democratic presidential candidates spending time in Texas ahead of next week's Super Tuesday primary. Warren held a rally in San Antonio Thursday, sharing the stage with the city's former mayor, and former Democratic presidential candidate, Julián Castro. Warren will also be in Houston on Saturday.

Last year when Julián Castro declared that he was running for president, few were surprised. But it was clear with the crowded field of candidates it would be an uphill battle for the former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development to win the nomination. But sometimes campaigns catch the zeitgeist.

Former San Antonio Mayor and HUD Secretary Julián Castro is now also a former candidate for president. He announced last week that his campaign for the Democratic nomination lacked the money and the poll numbers. But Castro told Texas Public Radio he isn’t finished having an impact on national politics.

Just days after ending his campaign for president, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro is endorsing Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The two will hold a rally together Tuesday evening in Brooklyn.

The last Democratic presidential candidate from Texas — and the only Latino — has stepped off the political field, nearly one year since the former secretary of U.S. Housing and Urban Development and San Antonio mayor first entered the race.

From Texas Standard:

The last Texan in the presidential race, Julián Castro, lamented Tuesday about the dwindling number of  candidates of color vying for the Democratic nomination. Kamala Harris had just suspended her bid, and Castro chastised the media for contributing to candidates of color leaving the race.

Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro is threatening to end his campaign if he does not raise $800,000 by the end of the month, saying he is in "dire need of financial resources to keep going."
