[1]Mark Kelly for Senate

Friend, I’m Colin Allred, and I'm the official Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate against Ted Cruz.

Now, the real fight begins. I'm ready to outwork, outraise, and out-organize Ted Cruz to win this thing, and with multiple polls already showing me TIED with Ted, I'm confident we can do it. But I also know Cruz is backed by wealthy mega donors who will spend whatever it takes to keep him in office.

That’s why I need you with me: Please, will you chip in $3 – or whatever you can spare – to help reach my $1 million General Election Kickoff goal?

Every dollar you can spare will power our people-powered movement through Election Day so we can defeat Ted Cruz and deliver better, stronger leadership for the people of Texas. Will you help kick our campaign off in a huge way by donating $3 or more to me and Mark Kelly right now? →

I’m a fourth generation Texan, born and raised in Dallas by a single mom. My mom was a public school teacher and sometimes worked two jobs to make ends meet. Thanks to my family and a strong support system of teachers, coaches, and the good folks at the YMCA, I earned a full-ride football scholarship to Baylor University and then went on to play in the NFL.

But playing football was never my only dream – from a young age I knew I wanted to help people. So I became a civil rights attorney to defend what I believe is our most fundamental right: the right to vote. I proudly served in President Obama’s administration before I came home to Dallas, where my wife, Aly, and I are now raising our family.

I ran for Congress in 2018 because I wanted more kids in North Texas to have the opportunity to achieve their version of the American dream. I also saw that our democracy was in peril and wanted to be part of protecting it. No one gave me a chance in that race, but I beat the odds to defeat an 11-term Republican incumbent. Since then, I'm proud to have been named the most bipartisan member of the Texas delegation.

Now, I’m ready for my next challenge: firing Ted Cruz and being the voice all Texans need in the Senate. We're already better off than we were in 2018, with experts calling Cruz the most vulnerable GOP Senator in the country, and two polls in a row showing us tied. I'm not saying it will be easy, but with you on my grassroots team, I know we can get it done.

That’s why I’m asking you to chip in right now to become a General Election Founding Donor and help reach our ambitious $1 million goal. We need an unprecedented grassroots movement to unseat Ted Cruz, and I’m counting on you to be a part of it. Please, rush $3, or whatever you can spare, to help me and Mark Kelly win in Texas, defeat Ted Cruz, and give Texans the leadership we deserve. →

Thank you so much for being a part of my team. Your support has gotten me this far, and it's why I know we can win.

Let's do this,

Colin Allred
