- Castro and Warren are set to have a rally together Tuesday, according to NPR. This is the second high-profile endorsement for a candidate after Rep. Alexandria Cortez-Ortiz threw her support behind Bernie Sanders. Despite this, Joe Biden has the most endorsements of any candidate in the race.
A few candidates that have dropped out of the race such as Kamala Harris, have yet to endorse anyone. The rally for Castro and Warren is expected to take place in Brooklyn.
