Allred Celebrates One Year of Momentum in Campaign to Beat Ted Cruz

DALLAS – One year since the launch of his campaign for the U.S. Senate, Congressman Colin Allred continues to build momentum behind his push to defeat Ted Cruz and deliver new leadership for Texas. 

Since his resounding primary victory, Allred has earned the endorsements of elected leaders from across the state, labor unions, reproductive rights organizations and set fundraising records – outraising Ted Cruz in every quarter including by $2.5 million in the most recent filing. He has garnered support from more than 285,000 individual donors, including contributions from 247 out of 254 Texas counties.

Dedicated to connecting with communities directly across the state, Allred has already made 125 stops and his campaign has engaged over 263,000 Texans in grassroots conversations about the issues that matter most to them leading up to November. 

“This campaign is building a broad, diverse coalition of Texans who believe in protecting Texans’ freedoms. The momentum we have seen in the first year clearly demonstrates that Texans are ready for a new kind of leadership in the Senate and to send Ted Cruz packing for good,” said Colin Allred for Senate Campaign Manager Paige Hutchinson. “On November 5th, we are going to deliver on that promise and hold Ted Cruz accountable for his extremism and lack of leadership by electing Colin Allred.” 

Since launching his campaign, Allred has also worked to hold Cruz accountable for his divisive brand of politics, his extreme record on abortion, and for voting against legislation that is good for Texas. This includes important legislation like the CHIPS and Science Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, both of which Cruz voted against. Cruz also opposed a bipartisan agreement to surge resources to secure the border and hire more border patrol agents.
