(Worthy News) – Newly minted Republican Rep.-elect Mayra Flores’s electoral victory in Texas marked the latest warning sign for Democrats that Hispanic voters are increasingly dissatisfied with their agenda and potentially shifting to the Republican Party.
Flores made history on Tuesday night, becoming the first Mexican-born woman elected to Congress after she defeated Democratic opponent Dan Sanchez by 8 points in the special election for Texas’s 34th Congressional District. Incumbent Filemon Vela (D.) vacated the seat in March.
A Republican hasn’t represented the heavily Hispanic area along the nation’s southern border in the Rio Grande Valley since 1870, according to the Houston Chronicle. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
