Former US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro has declared his ambition to run for the US Presidency in 2020 under the Democrats platform. 

Castro, a Mexican-American is seen as a plausible option by young Americans considering his age and track record.

The former Mayor of San Antonio, 44 has named his twin brother, who serves as a Member of the Congress his campaign chair. 

"I'm running for president because it's time for new leadership, because it's time for new energy and it's time for a new commitment to make sure that the opportunities that I've had are available to every American," he told cheering supporters.

"When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, I'm sure she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for President of the United States of America," Castro said in a statement.
