On a stage in front of employees and media Monday, Mayor Julian Castro endorsed Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis, Dist. 10, for Texas Governor.

In one of her first campaign stops since announcing her candidacy last Thursday, Davis visited San Antonio cloud company Rackspace, learning about the technology services they provide as well as the fun employees have.

Davis even took a ride down a two-story slide housed inside “the castle,” as the company calls its workplace.

The senator spoke in front of a crowd of employees following her tour and took and answered questions.

She applauded Mayor Castro for the passing last month of the city’s non-discrimination ordinance, which sparked citywide controversy.

A Rackspace representative said, as a company, it is not endorsing any candidate and welcomes a visit by Davis’ Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Davis went on to visit the San Antonio Firefighters Association following her Rackspace stop.
