Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“From his leadership as the Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to his service on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to his willingness to always speak truth to power, Congressman Joaquín Castro is a true Texas Democratic leader and has earned the respect of his peers as a trusted defender of our very democracy.
“Congressman Castro is smart, dedicated, and driven by fairness and justice. He represents what it means to be a Texas Democrat and he possesses the judgment, knowledge, tenacity, and skill needed to protect our Constitution and our democracy. We applaud Speaker Pelosi for her decision to select Congressman Castro as an impeachment manager.”
