Says Allred has been an “effective voice for moderation and comity in Congress and we think voters should return him to office.”
DALLAS -- Congressman Colin Allred earned the endorsement of the Dallas Morning News Editorial Board for reelection to Congress in the 32nd District of Texas. Allred has also received the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which cited his 95% bipartisan rating, and his work to deliver a trade agreement with Mexico.
Key Excerpts from the Dallas Morning News’ editorial endorsement:
“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.”
“...Allred, a 37-year-old attorney, strikes us as the more prepared of the two and the more likely to strike a tone of bipartisanship that this district plainly wants — and the country as a whole needs.”
