Rep. Castro is cruising to OC
Orange County Republicans brought Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in town for their 2013 party fundraiser, but local Democrats think they're getting the better deal by scheduling Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) to their big soiree in October.

Castro, who represents a large portion of San Antonio in Congress, isn't a bomb-thrower like Cruz. He's an articulate, rising star in national Democratic politics and his identical twin brother, Julian--the mayor of San Antonio, delighted his party's last presidential nominating convention with his speaking abilities.

Orange County Democrats will welcome Rep. Castro as their keynote speaker for the 19th Annual Harry S Truman Dinner on Oct. 19 at The Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.

There's a scheduled VIP reception set for 5 p.m. and a 6 p.m. launch of the night's program and dinner that has historically been the primary fundraiser for local Democrats.

Castro, who previously served in the Texas legislature, attended Stanford and earned his law degree from Harvard.

Tickets are $150 for general admission and $100 for young Democrats.

Past keynote speakers have included Gov. Jerry Brown, Barney Frank and John Kerry.

He's a perfect choice for OCWeekly staff: He has one of the lowest Freedom Index scores in Congress (10%), is an Ivy Leaguer, and a latino. He has little respect for the Consitution and affords every respect to illegal immigrants. Errrr, sorry, I meant "irregular migrants".

you're right

hes got so many people already doing it for him

cruz OTH ,like most of the conservative think, know that they have to do a lot of the heavy lifting and not count or demand that others do the work for them


@JGlanton Wow! A troglodyte looks up a made up index, and assigns value to it.  Say, ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere does not ring a bell?  Of course not, that is science, and what you have is pig vomit.
