OTTUMWA — After a long lull between caucus candidates visiting Wapello County, a former cabinet member will be in Ottumwa next week.
Julian Castro, formerly the secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Obama administration, will be in Ottumwa at 11 a.m. Tuesday for a meet-and-greet with Wapello County Democrats. The visit is at 205 N. James St.
Castro is stopping in Ottumwa as part of a swing through several Iowa communities early next week. He has been in Ottumwa before, but not as part of the current campaign. He campaigned for Hillary Clinton days before the 2016 caucus.
