Former NFL player and political journalist Colin Allred, who on Tuesday said a major upset over the cancellation of the 11-year GOP Rep. Pete Session in the 32nd Congressional District of Dallas, soon declined to say whether he would support Nancy Pelosi to seek the return of the president.
Speaking exclusively to Fok Nevs "Dana Perino" at "Daili Briefing," Allred, 35, insisted he wanted to explore the field before making any commitments. The 78-year-old Pelosi, in a letter to members and elected members of the Congress on Wednesday evening, formally announced her candidacy for the return of the president.
"I really want to see who works. I want to talk to them, I want to hear what their ideas are, and I want to get a few obligations," Allred said. "From the infrastructure, I think it should be one of the first things in our book in the House."
Allred, a lawyer from the Berkeley Lav School who also worked as an Obama administration official, added that "it is most important for me to make sure that we care about our needs here" in North Texas.
"I think a lot of Democrats want a change."
Other Democrats have noted obvious concerns about giving iron back to Pelosi, whom Trump has regularly stopped as too old and corrupt to be the face of a serious opposition. Tim Rian, D-Ohio, told Fox News on Sunday that "there will be no crowning" for Pelosi.
"I think many Democrats want a change," Rian said, who challenged Pelopon as president in 2016, he said in an interview.
The victory of Allred in the Sessions, chaired by the influential committee House Rules, is seen as a sign of some analysts that move Texas to the left in the midst of demographic changes and heightens concern about health insurance for people with the existing conditions.
Another potential indicator: a narrow victory that GOP senator Ted Cruz achieved against a well funded rebel challenge from Beta O'Rourke in the most expensive race of the Senate in history.

Although the Session benefited from the congressional district that was effectively drawn for him in 2011, the district went to Hillary Clinton for 2 points in 2016, the year that Session won easily. And during the campaign, the session significantly reduced the money from Allreda.
However, with the sign that Texas is still a very conservative, popular GOP Gov Greg Abbott, who has more favorable ratings than the Cruze, won on Tuesday the Democrat Lupa Valdez by more than 14 points.
For his part, Allred entered the domestic competition as a local referendum.
"This community is seeking change," Allred said after his victory was called. "They want new ideas, they want a new approach, and that's what I want to give them. This victory is the message to Washington."
