Texas AFL-CIO Statement on Victory by Colin Allred in CD 32

Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement on the victory by U.S. Rep.-elect Colin Allred in Congressional District 32:

Colin Allred is the vanguard of a new political era in Texas. We are proud that Allred, a union Brother in the National Football League Players Association, ran an outstanding campaign based on support for all Texans who seek a Fair Shot at better lives. His victory over an entrenched incumbent benefited from deep organizing by labor and allied groups, working in coalition. What Allred accomplished is only the beginning. We look forward to working with him in the U.S. House as he works to build a better future for working families.
