ABA Partners with TBA on New Ads Recognizing Rep. Cuellar’s Support of Pro-Growth Policies


The American Bankers Association, in partnership with the Texas Bankers Association, today released new ads urging Texans to contact Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) and thank him for supporting legislation that promotes pro-growth economic policy.

“We are proud to partner with Texas bankers to shine a spotlight on Henry Cuellar’s strong support of legislation that is critically important to banks and their communities,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “We appreciate his willingness to advance commonsense policies that promote economic growth in Texas and across the country.”

“We are pleased to join ABA in highlighting Henry Cuellar’s efforts to grow the economy in our Texas communities,” said TBA President and CEO Chris Furlow. “He understands the key role community banks play in creating opportunity and jobs in South Texas, and it’s important that Texans know about his strong support for legislation that will help people buy a home and start a business.”

The voter education ads will begin running in Texas as soon as today in both English and Spanish. This marks the start of ABA’s voter education efforts in 2020. Click here to see the ads.
