If it wasn't enough that Hillary Clinton made Selena Quintanilla fans' heart skip in beat at her San Antonio stop by coming out on stage to Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, she definitely made heads turn by having 11-year-old Sebastien de la Cruz hit the stage to sing the national anthem. You know, the little boy who got all that backlash back in 2013 for singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” while wearing a mariachi outfit at game three of the NBA finals.
Former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro introduced Clinton at the event. Castro is truly “a symbol of the American dream for millions of Hispanics” as his twin brother Joaquin Castro told BuzzFeed Thursday.
“(I) look really hard at him for anything, because that’s how good he is,” she said at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce meeting in San Antonio, Texas Thursday before joining the former Mayor of the city at the “Latinos for Hillary” rally later in the day.
And the feeling is mutual. Castro boasted about Clinton at the rally saying, “The difference between her and the Republican candidates is that she respects the Latino community.”
But could the Housing and Urban Development Secretary be Hillary Clinton’s running mate should she secure the Democratic presidential nomination? The former first lady seems to think so, although she has yet to confirm anything. In light of a possible Clinton-Castro ticket in the 2016 presidential race, we rounded up other Latino big wigs who are also endorsing the former first lady.
