Allred vs. Cruz for Senate

Texas is set to see a heated battle for the Senate seat in 2020, as Democratic Representative Colin Allred has announced his intention to challenge incumbent Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Allred, a former NFL player and civil rights attorney, has been a vocal advocate for progressive causes since his election to the House of Representatives in 2018.

Allred has made it clear that he will be running on a platform of progressive values, including expanding access to healthcare, protecting the environment, and fighting for economic justice. He has also been a vocal critic of Cruz, accusing him of putting his own political ambitions ahead of the needs of the people of Texas.

The race is sure to be a close one, as Cruz has been a popular figure in the state since his election in 2012. However, Allred’s progressive platform and his strong record of advocacy for the people of Texas could give him an edge in the race. It will be interesting to see how the race plays out in the coming months, and who will ultimately be victorious in the battle for the Senate seat.
