Allred Earns Endorsement of Jewish Democratic Council of America

DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred today announced he has earned the support of the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA). The JDCA advocates for a just and equitable society, safe and secure Jewish communities, and strong and vibrant democracies in the United States, in Israel, and around the world.

“We must all stand together against antisemitism, hate and attacks on our democracy,” said Allred. “I am proud of my record supporting our Democratic ally Israel, and I am honored to earn the endorsement of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, as we work together to beat Ted Cruz, defeat extremism and finally give Texans the leadership we deserve in the U.S. Senate.”

“Representative Colin Allred is an experienced leader who shares our values and stands fervently against the right-wing extremism that puts our community at risk,” said Sam Crystal, JDCA Chief of Staff. “As Texas’s next Senator, Rep. Allred will continue to fight for the issues of importance to Jewish Americans, including defending our democracy,  protecting reproductive freedom, combating antisemitism, and supporting Israel. Ted Cruz has consistently failed to stand up to Donald Trump and emboldens the most dangerous and extreme policies in the GOP. Texans deserve new leadership, and JDCA will get out the Jewish vote to send Colin Allred to the Senate.”

The Jewish Democratic Council of America joins the Texas AFL-CIO, the Human Rights Campaign, the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the College Democrats of America, the League of Conservation Voters, End Citizens United // Let America Vote and other organizations in supporting Allred’s candidacy.

He has also earned the backing of a broad coalition of leaders from across Texas including Congress members Veronica Escobar, Joaquin Castro, Lizzie Fletcher and Marc Veasey, State Senators César Blanco, José Menéndez, Carol Alvarado and Royce West, as well as local leaders including El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, and Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis.
