(Las Vegas, NV) — San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro along with Nevada leaders were in Las Vegas Friday to stump for President Barack Obama’s plan to help Nevadans remain in their homes. Along with Castro were former Congressman Dina Titus and Assemblywoman Lucy Flores.
The President has expanded and extended tax credits to help more than 2.5 million Americans buy their first home and keep millions of houses from sitting vacant and unsold.
Castro also feels a large Clark County demographic may be a key to Pres. Obama getting reelected.
“I see a growing interest in the Latino community and among Americans in general. You can feel it in Nevada as well and people are tuning in and they see the clear the choice that we have in this election. I believe the Latino community will turn out in droves on Nov. 6th.”
Nevada has received over $150 million from the U.S. Treasury’s Hardest Hit Fund, a program established by the Obama Administration, to help those states with the highest rates of foreclosures and underwater mortgages.
