Real Results for North Texas
Colin was born and raised here in North Texas, one of the most dynamic and diverse communities in America. Our region is growing dramatically, with more than one hundred thousand people moving here every year, attracted by opportunity, our spirit, and our way of life.
Our country and our community are facing huge challenges and the current crises highlighting how our system is broken, we need leaders in Washington who have a record of getting real results.
Colin knows that by working together we can continue to build on the progress we’ve made and continue to take on fights that matter to us: building an economy that works for everyone, ensuring affordable housing and health care, and guaranteeing a quality education for every child.
That’s why Colin spent his first term in Congress working across the aisle to deliver real solutions to the problems North Texans face. He led the fight to lower prescription drug prices, championed a bipartisan paid family leave bill, passed a trade deal with Mexico that keeps jobs in North Texas, and secured the Garland VA Medical Center to help serve thousands of veterans in our community and create thousands of jobs in the process.
Colin was born and raised in this District.
He attended Dallas public schools, where his mom was a teacher for part of her 27-year career in public education. He lives by the values that he learned here, those same values that inspired him to work to preserve our most important right as Americans — the right to have your voice heard at the ballot box.
With the help of his family, community, and coaches, Colin was able to attend some of the best schools our country has to offer, pursue his dreams of playing in the NFL, and become a civil rights attorney.
Colin’s story shouldn’t be the exception. If you work hard and play by the rules, every Texan should have the opportunity to achieve their dreams. That’s why Colin is running for Congress.
Our leaders in Washington aren’t tackling the problems facing the people of North Texas. Together, we can change that.

In the 32nd congressional district, here is our recommendation.
October 12, 2020
Dallas Morning News
"Colin Allred has been an effective voice for moderation and comity in Congress and we think voters should return him to office. We find ourselves agreeing with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which also recommended Allred, that he has a bipartisan approach to legislating that is serious and focused on solutions. Allred’s work on the bipartisan United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement was an important effort to lead us toward a better free trade future in this hemisphere. His dedication to seeing a high-speed rail project completed between Dallas and Houston is important for the state’s transportation future. He played an instrumental role in ensuring that a hospital in Garland that was slated to close instead was converted into a new VA facility to treat military veterans. And his support of emergency aid to the border to increase a humanitarian as well as a security response was welcome as well."
Inside Texas Politics: Dallas Democrat US representative endorsed by Chamber of Commerce

"I think that the Chamber of Commerce's support is a reflection of the work that I've tried to do in my first term in congress which is to find every avenue that I can to work on a bipartisan basis to deliver results. It's just true that being pro-business doesn't mean you have to be a Democratic or Republican. It's about taking the positions and the actions and working as much as you can to find solutions to actually help businesses succeed. That's why the chamber endorsed me and gave me a 95% bipartisan support score."

"The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a historically conservative-leaning business group, has endorsed Dallas Rep. Colin Allred, a freshman Democrat whom Republicans are spending considerable money and effort to defeat. Thomas Donohue, the chamber’s chief executive officer, said Wednesday that Allred’s “leadership in Congress will benefit the nation as we combat the coronavirus, work to restore economic growth, and expand opportunities for all Americans.” “In challenging times, we are reminded of the importance of having leaders who understand the genius of the American system of government and free enterprise and who are willing to tackle the hard problems that confront our nation,” he said."
