Allred Earns Endorsement of Wendy Davis in Race for U.S. Senate
Austin, TX — Today, Congressman Colin Allred announced that he has earned the endorsement of former State Senator Wendy Davis for his campaign for U.S. Senate.
“Few people know Texas’ challenges – and its opportunities – as well as Wendy Davis does, and that’s why I’m so honored to earn her support,” said Congressman Allred. “Wendy has been a voice for everyday Texans – particularly Texas women – for over a decade. Her combination of dogged determination and detailed policy expertise have helped shine a light on the harm that extremists like Ted Cruz have caused in Texas. From helping us fight for women’s reproductive freedom – to helping us make sure Texas kids can get a quality public education – I’m proud to have Wendy join us in this race.”
Statement from Wendy Davis:
“Colin Allred has demonstrated that he understands the challenges facing working families in Texas. In particular, Colin understands how inaccessible even bare-bones health care has become to the average family in our state, from maternal and abortion care, to cancer screenings and basic prescription drug refills.
“While Ted Cruz riles up his podcast listeners with nonsensical culture wars about Barbie or Bud Light, Colin Allred is working to improve the lives of everyday Texans — from creating jobs to lowering the cost of living. Colin is an extraordinary leader — one who can bridge partisan divides with commonsense solutions to real problems. I’m proud to endorse him for U.S. Senate.”
Allred has also earned the endorsements of Reps. Lizzie Fletcher, Marc Veasey, and Veronica Escobar – and State Senator César Blanco of El Paso and State Representative Chris Turner of Arlington. In addition, Allred has earned the support of organizations like the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, Foreign Policy for America, American Federation of Government Employees, and End Citizens United // Let America Vote.
