• “About tonight”

    Mayor Julián Castro sent out this note soon after his keynote address in Charlotte tonight:

    Michelle Obama just stepped off stage—and, just, wow.

    I'll keep this quick.

    Thank you—that was an honor.

    We know what we're up against—a mountain of outside spending and a campaign willing to do whatever it takes to beat President Obama and drag this country backward.

    But no one on that convention floor is intimidated. We're ready.

    If you're feeling the energy, too, pitch in today to keep the momentum going.

    Thank you—it was an honor to speak tonight.

    Estamos unidos. Together, we can win this.

    Julián

    2012 Convention
