HUD head Julian Castro is under consideration to serve as the new DNC chair

Housingwire:

With Wasserman Schultz on the way out, set to step down after the Democrats’ convention ends later this week, the Democratic National Committee is now desperately in need of new leadership, and early reports suggest that one of housing’s biggest names may be in the running for the position.

According to CNN, and other outlets, Julián Castro, the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, is under consideration to serve as the new DNC chair.

Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, was also on Hillary Clinton’s shortlist for vice president, but ultimately lost out on that opportunity late last week, when Clinton named Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia, as her running mate.
