ICYMI: Another Big Week for Allred As He Outraised Cruz, Launched the First Spanish-Language Ad of the Cycle, and Earned Major Endorsements
Dallas, TX — This week the Allred for Senate Campaign continued to build on strong momentum and enthusiasm from last week, with big fundraising news, the launch of a Spanish-language media campaign and more big name endorsements.
Outraising Cruz for a Third Straight Quarter
For the third straight quarter, Colin Allred outraised Ted Cruz in Senate campaign contributions – this latest quarter beating him by a whopping $1.4 million. Additionally, Allred ended Q4 with over $10 million cash-on-hand, over $3.9 million more than Cruz.
Since launching his campaign, Allred received donations from over 200,000 unique supporters, including supporters from 246 of Texas’s 254 counties.
First Spanish-Language Ads of the Cycle
This week, the Allred campaign launched the first Spanish-language television ads of the election cycle with its spot titled “Nuestras Libertades”. The ad is live across digital platforms and will soon begin airing on television. It focuses on Allred’s strong family ties to the Rio Grande Valley.
Last week, Allred’s campaign launched its first television and digital ads of the cycle in the Dallas and Houston TV markets. Allred remains the only Senate candidate in Texas already running ads on television.
On Monday, just one day after he joined the 2024 AFL-CIO COPE Convention debate, Allred earned the endorsement of the Texas AFL-CIO – an endorsement that required a two-thirds majority vote by present delegates.
The following day, Allred earned the endorsement of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), thanks to the strong support of the group’s Texas members.
In recent days, Allred also earned the backing of Houston Mayor Emeritus Sylvester Turner and Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price; as well as State Representative Sheryl Cole and former candidate for lieutenant governor Mike Collier.
