Julián Castro Thinks His Path To The Nomination Is Through Nevada And Texas (HBO)

While many of the 2020 Democratic contenders are camped out in Iowa or New Hampshire, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro is in Nevada. It’s his seventh visit to the Silver State since announcing his presidential exploratory committee.

“I see this state as just crucial to victory,” Castro said. “Out of the first four early states: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina, I’ve always received the best response here in Nevada.”

Castro contends that he has a unique path to victory: an early win or strong showing in Nevada, followed by the same in California and Texas, both Super Tuesday states. It’s a path that plays on Castro’s supposed strengths.

The former Mayor of San Antonio, Texas argues that those Western and Southwestern states share a similar sensibility. Plus, as the only Latino vying for president, Castro believes he can mobilize the large Latino electorates in each of those states, and then do the same in the general election.

“I have no doubt that in 2020 the Latino turnout rate is going to go up because people are not just thinking about Donald Trump as a theoretical anymore,” Castro said. “They know how bad he’s been as president.”

On Friday, Castro announced he’s reached the Democratic National Committee’s debate threshold of 65 thousand individual donors, along with the other criteria. So his fundraising may have accelerated since his first quarter numbers (he only raised $1.1 million) but the latest polls still show him in the single digits.

Castro seems unfazed by those early indicators. “What can I do except go and work hard and do what a lot of families out there do every day which is to scrap and to continue to work,” Castro said.

VICE News followed Castro during two days of campaigning in Nevada.

Trump’s Biggest Enemy In The Courts Gave The Spanish State Of The Union Response (HBO)

Xavier Becerra, the attorney general of California, was an obvious choice to deliver the Democratic Party’s Spanish-language response to the State of the Union address. He’s the child of Mexican immigrants. He represented a heavily Latino district in Los Angeles during his 24 years in congress.

And as attorney general of the most populous state in the union, Becerra has already sued the Trump administration 45 times to block some of its biggest moves on healthcare, the environment, and, most importantly, immigration.

Trump’s address — in spite of its gestures toward reconciliation — repeated the same message on immigration he’s been delivering since his campaign. That set Becerra up to draw a sharp contrast between Trump and the Democrats for the potential Latino voters watching live on Telemundo and Univision.

“Tonight was supposed to be about convincing us that, from here on out, the deceit and dysfunction would stop, and that cooperation would begin,” Becerra said in his speech. “What we heard was the same tired refrain of building walls.”

But distinguishing the Democratic Party from Trump “isn’t tough,” as Becerra told VICE News. Much harder is reconciling the profound divisions that exist on immigration within the Democratic party — between a newly ascendant left wing that’s turned “Abolish ICE” into a slogan, and an establishment that has for decades played an active role in dramatically expanding the immigration enforcement system.

The Women’s March Rivalry Is Just The Left Eating Itself (HBO)

In 2017, 4 million people marched in women’s marches across America. The second-biggest march, in New York, was run by a first-time activist, Katherine Siemionko. Eventually, she quit her job at Goldman Sachs to run the non-profit she created, the Women’s March Alliance. This year, Siemionko had to worry about more than march logistics. She had to worry about a rival women’s event, run by the more-famous Women’s March Inc.

But what might superficially seem like a petty turf war is actually about a broader debate within progressive politics, over intersectionality, and what role race and ethnicity should play in the direction of the women’s movement.

Siemionko is relatively new to the women’s movement. She remembers being in business school at St. Louis University in Missouri and seeing a workshop called “Shattering the Glass Ceiling.” She didn’t get it.

“All my friends were like, ‘You have to go.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what a glass ceiling is,’” Siemionko says. “I remember reading what a glass ceiling was and thinking, ‘That’s because women can’t negotiate.’ … Boy was I wrong.”

Her experience on Wall Street began to open her eyes. “I had men reporting to me making double my salary. And it was a hard journey for me to realize that women in this country don’t have equal rights.”

In a way, Siemionko embodies a debate within feminism over intersectional feminism, the idea that there’s no universal experience of being a woman, but that oppression based on class, race, disability, sexuality all interact. Siemionko doesn’t think that way. “The moment you say you’re white, therefore, you are racist… I can’t say ‘You’re black, therefore,’ ‘You are Latino, therefore’… we are all one. We have to stop looking at each other as skin colors.”

Even so she’s deeply aware of how her words are perceived.

“Your speech is inhibited by this concept that any words you say may offend somebody, and we have to get over that. We have to say look we’re doing the best that we can,” Siemionko says. “I have to be careful with my wording because it will get picked apart. That’s the society we live in. I cannot speak my thoughts. I have to filter them.”
