Allred Earns Endorsement from Houston Chronicle, “Allred is more likely to be a doer…. We enthusiastically endorse his candidacy”

DALLAS — Today, Congressman Colin Allred earned the endorsement of the Houston Chronicle in his run to earn the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate and beat Ted Cruz. On Friday, Allred earned the endorsement of the San Antonio Express-News.

Key Excerpts:

“Voters who go with their head will likely cast a ballot for U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, a 40-year-old, three-term congressman from Dallas who touts his pragmatism and his ability to work with colleagues from both sides of the aisle.”

“Allred, we believe, is more likely to be a doer in the Senate. We enthusiastically endorse his candidacy.

“His conciliatory approach has been successful on several fronts. He points out that he worked with the Trump administration to acquire a VA hospital for his district. He notes that he worked with U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, to pass the Safer Communities Act…”

Allred’s life story is also appealing… ‘I was raised by a single mother as public school teacher in Dallas — we don’t pay our teachers enough — so there was a bit of a struggle. I relied on my community, in my YMCA, my teachers, my coaches,’ he told us, underscoring it took a village to raise him.”

“…Allred will attract crossover voters — particularly White suburban, traditionally Republican female voters — who either oppose the party’s position on abortion, can’t tolerate Trump, or both.”
