Christian Collins “Strongly Considering” Running for Brady’s Congressional Seat

With the announcement that Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) is retiring, the Texas 8th Congressional District is now wide open. Texas Youth Summit founder Christian Collins could be the first prospective candidate to throw his hat in the ring.

In an interview with Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale on “The Christian Collins Show” podcast, Collins told Mattress Mack that he is “strongly considering” a bid for congress.

Towards the end of the podcast in which Collins interviewed Mack on topics of leadership and entrepreneurship, Mattress Mack turned the interview around with a question for the host:

“Christian it’s great to see you,” said Mattress Mack. “I’ve followed your career now for many years; you’re a very impressive young man. Now it’s my turn to be the questioner and your turn to be the answerer.”

“Are you going to run for Kevin Brady’s congress post that he just vacated?”

“It’s an interesting time,” Collins replied, remarking that he is “strongly considering it”.

“I’m really excited about that prospect and I’m strongly considering it,” Collins said.

Collins was Brady’s former campaign manager and political advisor. In addition to the Brady campaign, Collins worked on Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign in 2016 and advised Congressman Dan Crenshaw’s (R-TX) campaign.

After the Republican midterm losses in the 2018 election, Christian dedicated himself full-time to keeping Texas red. He founded the Texas Youth Summit, an organization committed to youth outreach, presenting the conservative message to young people. He was elected a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2020. If elected to congress, Collins would be one of the youngest Republicans in the House.

Mattress Mack also had an announcement to make about his own future political career:

“I’ll make this announcement right now about what office I’m running for,” Mattress Mack said. “People ask me all the time, ‘Are you going to run for mayor? Are you running for governor? What are you going to run for?'”

“I’m running for your furniture man,” exclaimed Mattress Mack, “so come buy your furniture from us and we’ll deliver it free, free, free today!”
