Julian Castro to speak at Wendell Ford dinner next month

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro will be the featured speaker at the annual Wendell Ford dinner sponsored by the Kentucky Democratic Party.

The June 3 dinner at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville is the official start of the Kentucky Democratic Convention, where party leaders will select delegates to the national convention this summer.

Castro is the former mayor of San Antonio. He was the keynote speaker for the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Hillary Clinton, who leads Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, is considering Castro as a potential running mate in the fall.
