Castrogate Rocks San Antonio.
Julián Castro wants to be mayor of San Antonio, Texas. He wants it so much, he sent his twin brother to impersonate him on a campaign float.
Or, so says Castro's opposition.
He walked like him. He waved like him. He even had the same haircut, and for the voters of the Texas town of San Antonio, the man standing in front of them looked like the mayoral candidate Julian Castro. There was only one problem. It wasn't him.
Julián and Joaquin are both graduates of Stanford University and Harvard Law. Julián currently serves on the San Antonio City Council, while Joaquin is a member of the Texas House of Representatives.
It is unlikely the mix-up will have any affect on Julián Castro's front-runner status. In every poll conducting in San Antonio this year, Castro has been far ahead of his competitors:
With Texas' changing demographics, the Castro brothers could be a dynamic political force in the coming years, breaking the Democrats' lengthy dryspell, much like the Salazar brothers did in 2004 in otherwise Republican-leaning Colorado. Allegations of duplicity could come back to haunt the young Castro brothers, but more likely this event will simply go down as a humorous off-beat story in the annals of Texas politics.
