U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro has stated Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is not vetting him for the vice presidential role on the Democratic ticket, while repeating his insistence that he will not be picked as Clinton’s running mate.
According to a Chicago Tribune report, Castro side-stepped a question if he would accept the invitation to become Clinton’s running mate, insisting that conversation on the subject cease.
"I'm not going to get into that,” Castro said. “Number one, I've said for a long time, I don't believe that's going to happen. This is a decision that she's going to make and I'm going to be happy to support whatever the ticket is."
Castro broke ranks with other Obama Administration officials by endorsing Clinton during the primaries and actively campaigning for her, and was considered a frontrunner for the vice presidential spot by many political experts. In recent weeks, however, Castro’s star power has faded as more focus has gone on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a Clinton running mate.
