Castro and Gillibrand

So this week has seen both Julian Castro and Kirsten Gillibrand make their bids for the US Presidency. Both are popular and have good grassroots experience and fine political acumen. Castro has been Mayor of San Antonio and was in Barack Obama's cabinet. His identical twin, Joaquin, is a member of the US House of Representatives. Kirsten Gilibrand is a US Senator from New York, Donald Trump's home state, and previously served as a Congresswoamn
How far they will go remains to be seen, but they are both experienced and yet outside the mainstream political choices that are usually made in nominating a President, and both deserve the job from what I can see. I wish them both well.
