Americans for Prosperity names former House candidate Genevieve Collins as its Texas director



Texas – Former Congressional District 32 candidate Genevieve Collins will direct the Texas operation for the conservative group Americans for Prosperity.

“I look forward to bringing Texans together to drive transformational policy solutions to the challenges Texas families are facing with Americans for Prosperity’s dedicated grassroots at the helm,” Collins said Thursday in a prepared statement. “Now more than ever, Texans are striving for principled policy that helps end the pandemic and helps the economy recover strong”

Before her run against Allred, Collins served as senior vice president of corporate strategy for Istation, her family’s education technology company.

Collins joins Americans for Prosperity at a time when its leaders are pushing what they call “Texas-sized reforms.” They want Texas lawmakers to reduce tax burdens, promote businesses, expand access to health care, improve education and reform the criminal justice system.

“Our Texas Sized Reforms agenda encourages legislators to drive those solutions and the Lone Star State forward to save lives, save livelihoods, and recover stronger,” Collins said in her statement.

Collins also said she did not plan to run for office in 2022.
