Castro Said to be Cabinet Pick

President Obama "is preparing to nominate Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio as his new secretary of housing and urban development, elevating one of his party's Hispanic rising stars as part of a cabinet shuffle that has possible implications for the 2016 presidential race," the New York Times reports.

"Mr. Castro, who has often been mentioned as a potential vice-presidential candidate for the Democrats, would take the place of Shaun Donovan, who is to become director of the Office of Management and Budget. That job is being vacated by Sylvia Mathews Burwell, whom Mr. Obama tapped to be secretary of health and human services and who seems headed to Senate confirmation."
