Allred Campaign Marks End of Hispanic Heritage Month 2023
Dallas, TX — Today, the Colin Allred for Senate campaign marked the end of Hispanic Heritage Month by releasing the video below from Latino leaders around the state who explain why Colin Allred is their choice to be the next U.S. Senator from Texas:
Congressman Allred released the following statement marking the end of Hispanic Heritage Month:
“Texas’ Hispanic and Latino communities are a critical part of our state’s cultural fabric. From immigrant families who are new to Texas, to the folks whose lineage goes back to before our state existed, these diverse communities enrich every corner of our state.
This Hispanic Heritage Month, I am so proud of the broad coalition of Texas leaders supporting our efforts to fire Ted Cruz in 2024. As senator, I will be dedicated to supporting our state’s Latino communities – and ensuring every Texan has the opportunity to chase their version of the American dream.
Even though Hispanic Heritage Month is coming to an end, we must continue to honor the countless contributions Latinos have made to Texas and to our country. Hispanic heritage is Texas heritage – and we should celebrate it every single day.”
In addition to the leaders featured in the video above – Rep. Veronica Escobar, State Senator César Blanco of El Paso, and congressional candidate Michelle Vallejo – Allred also has earned the endorsements of Reps. Lizzie Fletcher and Marc Veasey; Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis; State Rep. Chris Turner of Arlington and former State Senator Wendy Davis; and numerous other state and local leaders.
In addition, Allred has earned the support of organizations including the League of Conservation Voters, the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, Foreign Policy for America, American Federation of Government Employees, and End Citizens United // Let America Vote.
