    RED ALERT: Republican Mayra Flores flips Texas region that Democrats have controlled for 150 years

    Published on

    Tuesday, Republican Mayra Flores accomplished a feat that Democrats dream they could replicate.

    Flores defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez in a special election for Texas’s 34th congressional district, 51 percent to 43 percent. She will assume her position this month and hold it until January. She is the Republican nominee for the November general election.

    The victory of Flores is historically significant for numerous reasons.

    First, Flores is the first Mexican-born woman to be elected to Congress; she was born in the U.S.-bordering Mexican state of Tamaulipas.

    Second, and most importantly, Flores’s victory validates the argument that Hispanic Americans are abandoning the Democratic Party in droves. According to the Houston Chronicle, the 34th congressional district of Texas is mainly Hispanic and has been dominated by Democrats for 150 years.

    Adding to the significance of Flores’ victory is the fact that Barack Obama carried the 34th district by a stunning 23 points over Mitt Romney just 10 years ago. Hillary Clinton won the district by 22 points over Donald Trump in 2016. In 2020, however, when President Joe Biden carried the seat by only four points, fissures in the Democrats’ strength in south Texas were apparent.
