Allred Releases Statement on Trump Campaign Rally in Houston
Dallas, TX — Today, Congressman Colin Allred released the following statement on former President Donald Trump holding a campaign rally this evening in Houston:
“From trying to overturn the will of the people on January 6th to helping enact our state’s barbaric abortion ban, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are a direct threat to Texans and our freedoms.
“This pair has made their extreme intentions clear if re-elected: they will slash our Social Security and Medicare, defund Texas public education, pad the pockets of wealthy corporations and Big Pharma, and make health care even more inaccessible for working families. In the Senate, I’ll work to bring Texans together and improve the lives of everyone in our state — not pit Texans against one another with extremist, partisan politics.”
According to FiveThirtyEight, Ted Cruz voted with Donald Trump over 92% of the time – opposing him only on rare instances, including voting against delivering COVID relief funds in 2020 and funding the government.
