On the border in Texas, Mayra Flores has achieved what many thought impossible, winning as a Republican in the 34th Congressional District. The NY Post’s Patrick Reilly reports:
Republican Mayra Flores defeated the leading Democratic candidate for an open congressional seat in a historically blue region of South Texas in a Tuesday special election.
Flores, who will be the first Mexican-born congresswoman, garnered about 51% of the vote to top Dan Sanchez, who received 43% of the vote with all precincts reporting.
The seat had been vacated in March by former Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela.
Shortly after 9:30 p.m., Flores declared victory at her election party in San Benito, the Texas Tribune reported.
“For over 100 years, we have been taken for granted,” she told her supporters, according to the report. “I will show you what real representation looks like. I will represent all people.”
Flores’ win even earned a shoutout from Elon Musk, who voted for her.
I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican.
Massive red wave in 2022.

Musk and thousands of formerly Democrat voters used their votes to show the world that they have had enough of the radical wokeism and anti-growth policies of the Democratic Party.
