San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro told Iowa Democrats that he's proud of a political party that provides access to education and health care coverage. The Democrat spoke Sunday at Sen. Tom Harkin's annual steak picnic in Indianola along with Vice President Joe Biden.

Castro is a rising political star who delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention last year. He said party volunteers must keep working so that future generations have the opportunities afforded to him and his family. He said he was able to get a quality education through federal grants and loans.

Castro spoke before Biden at the event, which draws Democrats with national political aspirations. He did not reference the 2016 presidential contest, except to say he is sure a Democrat will win.
