Governor Castro -- how does that sound?

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro is a rising star in the Democratic Party, highlighted by a keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention in August.

On Monday, Castro and Newark Mayor Cory Booker sat next to each other at a New York event.  That's when Booker -- who is active on social media -- tweeted that he believes Castro could become the first Latino governor of Texas.

Castro responded, saying he plans on staying mayor of San Antonio for now, but believes that a Democrat could win statewide office in six to eight years as demographics in Texas change.
