Allred Statement on Senator Cruz’s Plans to Challenge Electoral College Count
DALLAS — Congressman Colin Allred today released the following statement after Senator Cruz announced his plans to challenge the Electoral College count:
“At a time when hospitalizations are the highest they’ve been during this pandemic and so many in our state are struggling through no fault of their own, Senator Cruz is choosing to prioritize cynical partisan politics over helping Texans.
“Texans can do big things when we work together but we have to put the good of our state ahead of political gain. It is past time my colleagues in the Texas delegation accepted the will of the voters and began working to bring people together to address the big challenges our state faces.”
Allred has been a leading voice on this issue urging Attorney General Paxton to accept the results of the presidential election and focus on helping Texans weather this crisis.
