In Strong Show of Unity, Allred Begins General Election Earning Support of Leaders From Across Texas

DALLAS – Following his decisive primary victory earlier this week, Congressman Colin Allred is announcing he has earned the endorsement of leaders from across Texas including several elected officials who had endorsed other primary candidates.

“Ted Cruz is a lead architect of the attacks on our democracy and the culture wars concocted to divide us,” said Beto O’Rourke. “Colin Allred knows that we can only achieve great things when we unite around our shared values as Texans and as Americans. I’m proud to endorse him and I hope you’ll join me in putting in the work to send him to the Senate.”

“I’m proud to support my friend and colleague Congressman Colin Allred in his campaign to give families from San Antonio and all across our great state the leadership they deserve,” said Congressman Joaquin Castro. “I’ve seen firsthand what a thoughtful leader Colin is, and I couldn’t be more excited for him to finally unseat Ted Cruz.”

“In a time when we’ve lost the fundamental right to choose what happens to our bodies, our freedom to vote is under constant attack and Texans are struggling to make ends meet, we need a U.S. Senator who will fight every single day for Texans. We need Colin Allred,” said State Senator Carol Alvarado. “Time and again, Ted Cruz has shown he can’t be trusted to put Texans before his own interests. He’s leading the charge to further chip away women’s rights and we must hold him accountable this November.”

In addition to these leaders, Allred is proud to earn the endorsement of:
