Time for some more talk about how Republicans are a “threat to democracy”. And then maybe Soros can help buy up some more Latino radio stations.
Republican Mayra Flores flipped a Democratic House district in South Texas on Tuesday, a major special election victory building on GOP gains among Latino voters in the region in the 2020 election.
Flores, a respiratory care practitioner, had 51 percent of the vote to Democrat Dan Sanchez’s 43 percent when Sanchez conceded the race in a district where 85 percent of residents are Latino. Flores won the seat outright by taking a majority of the vote, without needing a runoff.
The obvious response should be more campaign ads accusing Republicans of being too tough on illegal immigrants.
With heavy Republican support, Flores far outraised her fellow special election candidates, plastering the airwaves with TV and digital advertisements in the month leading up to the primary. Many ads focused on her marriage to a Border Patrol agent and her achievement of “the American Dream,” while others criticized President Joe Biden for not controlling the border.
