Rep. Joaquin Castro talks Trump impeachment, potential bid against Ted Cruz and COVID-19 relief checks
An article of impeachment is expected to be sent to the U.S. Senate on Monday, and one of the nine impeachment managers who will argue to convict Trump is San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro. Castro spoke with La Prensa Texas this week about the impeachment effort and why the case for conviction needs to be made. ”It is a high bar to convict any president in the Senate,” Castro said. With Cruz resisting those calls, Texas Democrats expect one of the Castro brothers to run against Cruz in 2024, when his current term ends. “I do not believe that Mr. Cruz represents many of us in the state of Texas.”For now, Rep. Joaquin Castro isn’t focused on a potential Senate bid.
