Allred Launches First Ads of General Election, Early Ads in English and Spanish to Air in Key Markets Across Texas and Statewide on Digital

DALLAS – Today, Congressman Colin Allred announced his first series of general election ads, demonstrating an early push around key campaign priorities. The ads will run across TV markets in Houston, San Antonio, Harlingen-Brownsville-McAllen, and Laredo, in addition to English and Spanish ads running statewide on digital platforms. The ads will start airing tomorrow, Friday, May 17.

The ads focus on Allred’s background as a fourth-generation Texan who was raised by a single mom in Dallas and earned a scholarship to play football at Baylor before making it to the NFL. The ads also lay out his commitment to standing up to extremists in both parties to secure the border, protect Texas energy jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs and protect Social Security and Medicare.

“Mom” TV Ad Script:

My story isn’t about the father who wasn’t there, it’s about the mom who was. 

She was a teacher who worked a second job to make ends meet. With her support, I made it to Baylor and the NFL. 

In Congress, I’ve stood up to the President when he’s wrong – to defend Texas energy jobs and secure our border.

As your Senator, I’ll keep doing what’s right for Texas. To protect Medicare and Social Security, and add more border patrol agents. 

I’m Colin Allred and I approve this message, because my team is Texas.
