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.
