(Richardson, TX) – Less than a year after Sessions told his Washington allies to “keep the hell away from Dallas,” both Speaker Ryan’s Super PAC and the NRCC announced they would spend millions to protect an obviously unprepared incumbent. And now, Speaker Ryan’s trip to Dallas serves as yet another sign that Washington is staging a rescue mission for a Congressman they recognize is far from ready to face Colin Allred in this election.
"It’s not surprising that Speaker Ryan is parachuting into Dallas to prop up Congressman Sessions, after Sessions helped push Washington’s tax bill that gives massive handouts to corporate special interests while blowing a $1.9 trillion hole in the deficit. And now, as they’re out raising money together, Washington Republicans are already planning ways to cut Social Security and Medicare in order to paper over some of the $1.9 trillion in damage they’ve done,” said Colin Allred, civil rights attorney and candidate for Texas' 32nd congressional district.
"This Washington thank you note is just more evidence Congressman Sessions has lost touch with our community, and families here in North Texas are ready for a representative who will put all of us ahead of special interest groups and campaign donors."
