U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro "seriously" considering run against U.S. Sen. John Cornyn

The fourth-term congressman made clear he's eyeing a U.S. Senate bid, now that former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke confirmed he will not be running for that post.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro's camp released a statement early Friday morning making clear that the San Antonio Democrat is mulling whether to forgo re-election next year and instead challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, two days after Beto O'Rourke made clear he won't be vying for the seat.

"Congressman Castro will seriously consider running for Senate in 2020," Castro spokesman Matthew Jones emailed. "Right now, he's focused on protecting Texans – and all Americans – from the most consequential challenge to our constitutional separation of powers that we have seen in a generation."

"He will not stand by while the President attempts to unilaterally strip Texans of their land to build a wall in a manner that most Americans, especially Texans, disagree with."

May be a danger as RINO Cornyn  may not be particularly liked by us Texans.
Yearning to stay free takes place in many ways at many different times, whether by withstanding planes or bayonets
