Hispanics “Taken for Granted for over 100 Years”
Democrats Out of Step with Hispanic Voters
Mayra Flores, a Republican married to a Border Patrol agent, has won Texas’ 34th Congressional District, flipping a House seat and becoming the country’s first Mexican-born congresswoman, reports the WSJ.
Mayra Flores’ Pitch to Voters:
Soy el sueño americano.
(I am the American dream.)
Flores at her election night party in San Benito:
For over 100 years, we have been taken for granted. I will show you what real representation looks like. I will represent all people.
Washington liberals are killing the American dream, attacking oil-and-gas jobs and causing prices to skyrocket.
We must secure our borders and keep our families safe.
Biden Killing Jobs, Weakening Border Security
Ms. Flores also criticized President Biden’s job performance, noting his “record number of executive orders to kill Texas jobs, weaken border security, and remove protection for the unborn.” Ms. Flores, who describes herself as pro-life, promises to defend religious liberty.
Although she won outright with 51% of the vote in a four-way race Ms. Flores will have her work cut out for her to keep her seat in November, acknowledges the WSJ. Special elections aren’t always harbingers.
Flores’ election will take place under a revised map that makes the district more Democratic.
Ms. Flores will face incumbent Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, who currently holds the neighboring 15th district. She will need to work hard these next five months to prove herself. But whatever happens, her win Tuesday already proves that GOP can compete for her constituents.
Speaking of immigrants to the U.S., James Freeman (WSJ) reports that Elon Musk, another Texas resident, tweets:
I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican.
Massive red wave in 2022.
Ms. Flores tweets today via her campaign Twitter account:
Earning Elon Musk’s vote was just the icing on the cake and I can’t wait to work with his team! The American Dream is worth fighting for.
