Popular Congressman's Niece Waging Spirited Race in TX-32

No public polls have been conducted in Texas’ 32nd District (Dallas) and no candidate is unveiling their private polls.

But, two years after Democrat Colin Allred upset 12-term Republican Rep. Pete Sessions, observers on both sides now say that Rep. Allred’s contest with Republican newcomer Genevieve Collins is likely to go down to the wire by Nov. 3.

Collins, 32, is a newcomer only to seeking office, but her family has been part of the Dallas community for generations. Grand-uncle Jim Collins, a stalwart conservative, is still remembered warmly 38 years after leaving the U.S. House to run for the Senate.  Grandmother Calvert Collins was the first woman elected to the Dallas City Council.

Several Republicans privately told Newsmax that Sessions did not work on the minority communities that were gradually growing in the 32nd District.  The 32nd is now roughly 25% Hispanic, 15% Black, and 8% Asian.

''And these are communities I have been working in throughout my professional career,'' Collins told Newsmax, recalling her background as vice president of e-learning equipment  company Istation, overseeing technical equipment to teach children in school districts everywhere. 

As head of the company’s international division, she had firsthand dealings with China and, in her words, ''I saw this was a copycat society with no intellectual property. Our Asian community identifies with my call for us to be tough on China.''

Of Allred’s record, Collins told us, ''he votes 100 percent of the time with [Democratic Speaker] Nancy Pelosi, 98 percent with his party, and 93 per cent with [New York’s far-left Rep.] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ['AOC'].''

And, she added, ''he hasn’t passed a single bill.'' 

Although RealClearPolitics recently rated the 32nd ''leans Democratic,'' Collins believe she will win because ''voters are seeing a kind of Republican they haven’t seen before — young, female, with a background in business and the community. And in Congress, I’ll be different.''
