Democratic presidential hopeful Julián Castro joked Wednesday after a forum put a picture of his twin brother in an event pamphlet.

"I will say though that the picture that y'all have in your program is actually of my brother, Joaquin," Castro said as he took the stage at the "She the People" presidential forum in Texas.

"He would say that that's a good thing, because he's better looking than I am."
