Share on social

Texas is no stranger to high-stakes political races, and another one is coming up. A Popular Democratic Representative has announced his candidacy for the Senate seat currently held by Ted Cruz, much to the delight of liberals and the dismay of conservatives. Could this be a battle worth watching? 

Democratic Rep. Colin Allred of Texas has announced his bid for the Senate seat currently held by Republican Senator Ted Cruz. The former NFL player turned attorney has served two terms in Congress and has been known for his advocacy on reducing healthcare costs, protecting entitlements, and lowering college tuition fees. Allred has also held various leadership positions in the House.

Allred’s decision to run for the Senate seat against Cruz has sent shockwaves through Texas’s political landscape. The Democratic Party has seen Allred’s announcement as a potential game-changer, as he has been able to secure two terms in Congress, defeating a Republican incumbent in 2018.

Some democrats operatives seem to be excited for the match up. Tweeting a promotion video.

Allred’s campaign message focuses on reducing the cost of healthcare, protecting entitlements, lowering college tuition fees, and ensuring that the economy benefits all Texans. He has been actively advocating for expanding Medicaid in Texas, which has one of the highest uninsured rates in the country. He has also pushed for lower prescription drug prices and improving access to mental healthcare.

Allred’s record as a civil rights attorney and his work in former President Barack Obama’s administration has also been a key part of his campaign. He has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration’s immigration policies and has supported legislation to protect Dreamers and provide a pathway to citizenship.

Cruz, on the other hand, has been known for his conservative views and his involvement in the 2013 government shutdown. He has also been a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump and has been criticized for his role in perpetuating false claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

The race between Allred and Cruz is expected to be closely watched as it could potentially shift the balance of power in the Senate. Republicans currently hold a 50-50 split with Democrats, with Vice President Kamala Harris holding the tie-breaking vote.

Rep. Colin Allred’s announcement to run for the Senate seat against Republican Senator Ted Cruz has set the stage for a highly anticipated battle in Texas with Democrats attempting to turn Texas into California. Allred’s record in Congress has advocated for what the majority of Texans despise, yet democrats continue to try to force their agenda on a state that has rejected candidates the likes of Beto O’rouke. However, Ted Cruz has been an extremely popular senator in his home state giving him the clear advantage.
