Castro Campaign Unveils “Con Safos” Shirts

It isn't the first time the Castro campaign has used Chicano imagery.

The Julián Castro presidential campaign has rolled out a new varrio-inspired campaign T-shirt that reads “Julián Castro For President” in Old English lettering. The shirt also prominently features a “C/S,” which stands for Con Safos (with respect), a longtime Chicano saying.

The move isn’t Castro’s first attempt to build Latino support using Chicano imagery. Earlier this year, Julián Castro went for a drive in a lowrider (video below).

The new T-shirts were part of Castro’s new “placa” series and are available at his website.
