Engaged: Rep. Joaquin Castro and longtime girlfriend Anna Flores, the freshman congressman’s office confirmed Tuesday — though the news was originally broken by his older-by-a-minute identical twin brother, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, in a Facebook post late Monday. Flores, who has been dating the Texas Democrat for about three years, works for San Antonio tech firm and plans to keep living in their Texas district, rather than move to D.C., we’re told — a typical decision for many congressional spouses these days. In a statement, Castro said they are “grateful for the outpouring of love and well wishes on our recent engagement. We don’t have a set date, but we are excited for the many years together to come.”
