Warren, a freshman senator from Massachusetts, is popular with progressives for calling openly for re-regulating banking and finance capital (Wall Street), an idea Democrats like President Obama, Udall, Grisham and Lujan abhor because it would slow the river of campaign money they receive from those industries. Warren has openly criticized the Obama Administration for bailing out big banks while doing nothing to help the millions of working class homeowners who lost their homes during the recession, and also has called for taxing Wall Street transactions and using the money to subsidize public higher education.

Castro, a former Texas state representative elected in 2012 to a newly created gerrymandered district that lies north and south of San Antonio, is a "Ready For Hillary" Democrat whose twin brother Julián Castro is San Antonio's mayor. The brothers are mainstream Democrats who have embraced their roles as nationally visible Latino Democrats as the party seeks to placate Latino voters and still sell them out on most matters that affect or interest them such as immigration reform or their economic well being.
Joaquin Castro is often mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate should Republicans put up a Hispanic presidential or vice presidential nominee.
