Republican Mayra Flores Wins U.S. House Seat In South Texas, First GOP Win There In 150+ Years
Dave calls it - Republicans have flipped the second largest Hispanic majority district in the country.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Republican Mayra Flores has flipped a U.S. House seat in deep blue south Texas in what is a likely indicator of the coming red tsunami that could hit the Democrat Party this fall during the midterm elections.

Flores beat Democrat Dan Sanchez in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District. The seat was previously held by Rep. Filemon Vela (D) who stepped down earlier this year to become a lobbyist as all signs pointed to a brutal upcoming midterm election season for Democrats.

Flores is now “the first GOP candidate to represent that area of the Rio Grande Valley since 1870,” the Houston Chronicle  reported , adding that she is now “the first congresswoman born in Mexico.”

Dave Wasserman, U.S. House editor of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, tweeted: “I’ve seen enough: Mayra Flores (R) defeats Dan Sanchez (D) in the #TX34 special election, flipping an 84% Hispanic Rio Grande Valley seat red.”

The region has been devastated by Democrat President Joe Biden’s border crisis, something that has turned off many Hispanic voters that typically have voted for Democrats in the past.

“Republicans have been eager to flip the seat as part of their new offensive in South Texas after Biden’s underperformance throughout the predominantly Hispanic region in the 2020 election. Flores and her allies spent over $1 million on TV ads in the special election,” the Texas Tribune  reported . “The dynamic put Democrats into an unusual underdog position in a region of the state they have long dominated. Vastly outspent by Flores, Sanchez repeatedly compared the special election to a David vs. Goliath fight, with himself playing David.”

MSNBC columnist Eric Michael Garcia panicked over the results of the election, saying that Democrats needed to be sounding the alarm immediately.


“There is a political earthquake happening in Latino politics in South Texas and there is a reason I have been saying it will be voting like West Virginia,” he tweeted. “But like @SeanTrende , I expected this in two decades. #TX34. This should be a five alarm fire for Democrats.”

Culturally they align far more with Republicans.  If Republicans would take the lead on making legal immigration easier instead of screaming "build a wall", they would dominate the Latino vote.

But Republicans have done a wonderful job at appearing to be racist.  Most of them aren't, but calls to close the borders and build a wall (among other things) make it look that way.

How'd that work out for George Bush or John McCain? If Latinos had supported Romney like they did Trump, he would likely have been President.  Moderate Republicans have worked to make legal immigration easier pretty much the entire century,  yet it was "build a wall" Trump who started making serious in roads with Latinos.  Flores even  campaigned wearing a border patrol hat.  I don't think "easy immigration" is the main thing  Latinos want from Republicans.

Well... in 2004 Bush got 40% of the Hispanic vote, more than any Republican presidential candidate ever.   In 2016, Trump got 28%.  So I'm not sure where you're headed with this.

If Latinos had supported Romney like they did Trump, he would likely have been President.

I'm really not sure the math on that works out.   

Moderate Republicans have worked to make legal immigration easier pretty much the entire century,  yet it was "build a wall" Trump who started making serious in roads with Latinos.

Again, I don't think that math works out like you think it does.  Trump got one percent more of the Hispanic vote than Romney.  It was an ass-whipping both times.

   In 2016, Trump got 28%. So I'm not sure where you're headed with this.

In 2020, he got 38%.  That's significantly better than McCain or Romney and about the same as Bush, the highest level ever. All three Republicans were much more immigration friendly than Trump, and Trump did much better than two and the same as the other.  

It's pretty clear  support for "legal immigration" isn't driving votes or Trump would have done significantly worse than those three.  Even to claim Trump did the same as supporters of  "easy immigration" refutes the argument that "easy immigration" drives Latino votes. 

  I I'm really not sure the math on that works out.    

Well, again, 38% of the Latino vote is significantly more that 27%.   But I was wrong, an analysis says he would have needed 42% of the Latino vote to win, so slightly better than Trump did in 2020.

gain, I don't think that math works out like you think it does.  Trump got one percent more of the Hispanic vote than Romney.

Why do you keep ignoring 2020? 

The trend is clear, as the election last night shows.  Democrats are moving towards Republicans in ever greater numbers and Republicans haven't adopted "easy immigration"

It was an ass-whipping both times. 

 That comparison between 2012 to 2016  refutes your point.

Outstanding.  Republicans are still losing a demographic they should be dominating.  Literally everything about traditional Latino culture aligns better with Republican views than Democrats. 

It's pretty clear support for "legal immigration" isn't driving votes or Trump would have done significantly worse than those three. 

The perception that Republicans are racist is certainly driving votes away. 

There really isn't any excuse for not taking the lead on immigration reform.  It's low-hanging fruit.

I'm not talking about open borders.  I'm talking about basic, easy steps like raising the quota.  

We need to remember basic, basic stuff like the fact that legal immigration is in fact good for the economy.  It's good for small businesses. It's good for tax receipts. 

There are somewhere between 10 and 15 million illegal immigrants currently living in the US.  Imagine converting even just 50% of those to legal, tax paying residents.  

I live in Texas.   I know dozens of illegal immigrants.  Every last one would have come legally if it were allowed, and every last one would become legal today if it were possible.

The only thing stopping them is our collective stupidity.

Not if we simply raise the quota and streamline processing.

There is a gargantuan leap between reasonable immigration policy and "taking in the entire third world".  

In 1892, we took in 450,000 immigrants through Ellis Island alone.  130 years later, our quota for all ports of entry combined is 675,000.  That hasn't been updated in 30 years.

The party that gets out in front of the immigration issue will dominate the Hispanic vote for decades, and they are the fastest-growing segment of Americans.  If you're counting electoral votes and US House seats, they will be the majority in California, Texas and Florida within 25 years.

In the real world.... small businesses are closing because they can't afford labor.  Inflation is at Carter-Era highs, driven in part by labor scarcity. 

The Federal Reserve is attempting to quell inflation, but its only option is to reduce the money supply and suppress demand.  

The country is swamped with illegal migrants. 

The country is no more "swamped" now than it has been for decades.

And we'll take in millions more.... OR.... we could change the asinine quota to reflect reality and we take in millions of new taxpayers.

Election results say otherwise.  The majority of American Hispanics vote for the more pro-immigration party.

Mayra Flores, Who Has Promoted QAnon, Wins Seat in Congress - Rolling Stone

It’s primary season, but there was a special election in Texas on Tuesday in which Republican   Mayra Flores   defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez to secure a spot in Congress. The result is significant because the state’s 34th District had been blue, with Democrat Filemon Vega retiring this year to force the special election to carry out the remainder of his term. Flores’ victory in South Texas is another sign the party is losing ground with the state’s Hispanic population.

It’s also significant because Flores has promoted the   QAnon   conspiracy theory, which holds that the United States is run by a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who would — or still will — be brought to justice by Donald Trump.

Media Matters  points out  that Flores frequently adds “#Q” and “#QAnon” to her social media posts, as well as “#wwg1wga,” shorthand for “Where We Go One, We Go All,” a QAnon slogan.

Flores has denied she believes in QAnon,   telling   the   San Antonio Express-News   that she’s “always been against any of that.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), the most prominent QAnon supporter currently in Congress, has made similar denials. Her win in 2020 was alarming given the litany of outlandish   conspiracy theories she’d pushed in the past , from the idea that 9/11 was staged, to the idea that California wildfires were started deliberately by Jews, to several theories revolving around Democrats and pedophilia. These types of ludicrous, unfounded claims have since worked their way into mainstream conservatism, and it’s no longer shocking for Republican congressional candidates to have pushed any number of unfounded conspiracy theories — including, of course, that the 2020 election was fraudulent.

There’s no evidence Flores has articulated any of these views, but it’s nonetheless concerning that she doesn’t seem to have any problem aligning herself with QAnon. Her decision to do so is another reminder that the conspiracy theory and all of its tendrils aren’t only flourishing on the fringes. QAnon followers are now a core demographic many Republicans feel they need to court as they vie to win a seat in Congress. Flores will still have to win the general election in November to retain the seat beyond the remainder of Vega’s term, but for now, at least, conspiracy theorists can rest easy knowing they have one more ally in Washington.

But many of the same people who voted Democratic for over a century voted for a Republican this time.

She ran and won in a place where a glass of water with a 'D' behind it could win.

Flores won a district dominated by Dems for well over a century.

Now, which one was harder?

Republican Mayra Flores is projected to best her Democratic opponent Dan Sanchez in a special election in Texas’ 34th Congressional District,  flipping a House seat  and becoming the country’s first Mexican-born congresswoman.

As of Wednesday morning, Flores had garnered 50.98 percent of the vote to Sanchez’s 43.33 percent, with all precincts reporting. With the support of top Texas Republicans including Governor Greg Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz, she entered the race after former Democratic Representative Filemón Vela resigned. Flores will serve out the remainder of his term until November, when she will compete against Democratic Representative Vicente Gonzalez after redistricting that pollsters say favors him.

“For over 100 years, we have been taken for granted,” Flores said at her election night party in San Benito. “I will show you what real representation looks like. I will represent all people.”

Flores’ triumph represents a gain in territory in South Texas for the GOP, which has been keen to recover a majority in the House in November. However, the head of the  Texas Democratic Party , Gilberto Hinojosa, warned that the celebration would be temporary, predicting that Flores would hold the seat for a matter of months.

“In January 2023, this seat will rightfully return to Democratic hands,” Hinojosa said, the  Texas Tribune  reported.

Sanchez’ team had the financial backing of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which spent $100,000 on a digital ad buy. The House Majority PAC, the top Democratic super PAC in House races, also launched a $115,000 TV ad buy against Flores.

Flores has somewhat embraced the “America First” platform popularized by former President Trump and has slammed the Democrats for taking for granted the support of South Texas and the Hispanic community for decades.

“They do nothing to earn our vote or our support,” Flores also said on her campaign site. She 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.”

One of Flores’ TV ads claimed that the Rio Grande Valley is “under attack” at the border due to an unprecedented influx of illegal migrants. She pledged to ensure that “compadrismo,” the Spanish word for cronyism, in Washington does not “ruin our communities.”

Probably will now be labeled as a white supremacist, trying to stop "people that do not look like her" from taking over the country.

Then, of course, she will be called a racist.

That's how liberals are told to do it.
