I realize that Texas state Sen. Roland Gutierrez may also run, but he did not respond when asked if he was running. If Gutierrez is hesitating, then he is not sure that he can muster the resources needed to do a state-wide campaign, in my opinion. I had intended to wait before deciding, but after watching the commercial that Congressman Allred aired, my mind was made up. One other reason for picking Congressman Allred is that he is giving up his office to run; State Senator Gutierrez does not have to give up his office. Below is the commercial. I believe that Colin Allred has the best chance to defeat Cruz.
