Former HUD secretary endorses Jain at-large candidacy for Montgomery County Council

Former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Casto who served under President Barack Obama is endorsing Montgomery County Council at-large candidate Ashwani Jain.

Castro will formally endorse Jain, a Democrat, tonight at the home Sanjay and Vidya Govil in Potomac, Md. before a group of seventy Jain supporters, according to a statement released by Jain’s campaign.

The former HUD secretary, who is rumored to be running for president in 2020, called Jain, a former Obama official, a “champion for the families of Montgomery County.”
