Allred Earns Endorsement of Human Rights Campaign in Race for U.S. Senate

Dallas, TX — Today, Congressman Colin Allred is proud to announce he’s earned the endorsement of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) thanks to the strong support of the group’s Texas members in his race for U.S. Senate against Ted Cruz.

“As a civil rights lawyer and member of Congress, I’ve always believed no one should be discriminated against because of who they are, how they identify, or who they love,” said Allred. “LGBTQ+ Texans deserve a Senator who will listen to and fight for them, not extremists like Ted Cruz who use them as political pawns in divisive culture wars. I am grateful to HRC and their Texas members for their endorsement and look forward to continuing to work with them to ensure fairness and equality for every Texan.”

“Congressman Allred has been a steadfast ally to LGBTQ+ Texans and a leading voice speaking out against the cruelty happening in our state,” said Melodía Gutiérrez, HRC Texas State Director. “Our members in Texas are proud to throw their support behind Colin Allred and are ready to get to work to make him our next Senator.”

“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to endorse a fellow Obama alumnus and long-running fighter for civil and voting rights,” said HRC President Kelley Robinson. “A native Texan, Representative Allred has been a champion for the people of the 32nd district for the last six years in Congress and for decades prior as a civil rights attorney and public advocate. As a senator, I know that he will continue to fight for full equality for LGBTQ+ people and defend the civil liberties of everyday Texans.”

Allred has consistently earned high to perfect marks on the HRC Congressional Scorecard and is an original co-sponsor of the Equality Act, legislation that would prohibit discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity in businesses, employment, housing, federally-funded programs, and more.

Additionally, Allred was an original co-sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which codified marriage equality at the federal level when it was signed into law in 2022
