On Tuesday night, Mayra Flores did something no Republican had done in Texas 34 for over 100 years. Flipped the deep blue district into the red. Watch MSNBC’s meltdown knowing what this means for the Democratic Party:
“This speaks to a story we’ve been talking about since the 2020 election, specifically along the border, the Rio Grande valley, South Texas. We have seen county after county, whether it’s in this district or some of the districts to the west of it, where voters have moved 10, 20, 30, 40 points away from the Democrats and toward the Republicans.”
“This district that Mayra Flores won last night, Barack Obama got more than 60% of the vote here. When he last ran in 2012, Hillary Clinton won this district by 22 points. It’s shifted that dramatically. Joe Biden carried it by four in 2020, and now in a special election, a Republican candidate has won it outright.”
“We’ve seen shifts like this throughout south Texas. This by the way is the second most heavily Hispanic congressional district in the United States. We’ve talked about the potential shift among Hispanic voters. We certainly saw it in 2020. The question has been what we see it in 2022. I think this result we got from Texas 34 last night, definitely underscores the Hispanic vote could be up for grabs this fall in ways we haven’t seen in a long time.”
The Democratic Party’s policies for the last twenty years make it clear the leadership took for granted that Hispanic Americans would automatically back its anti-family, anti-religious, pro-abortion, socialist policies.
Now, it looks like Hispanic Americans may be the voting constituency to put Democrats in the minority for decades to come. You love to see it.
