BAD OMEN FOR RADICAL DEMS: Republican Mayra Flores Wins Big in Texas 34th Congressional District Special Election – Defeats Challenger by 7% in Seat Won by Democrat by 13% in 2020.
Republicans spent big to sweep a special election in Texas’ 34th Congressional District.
Joe Biden won this district in 2020 by less than 5 points.
A GOP win could mean a massive red wave is on the horizon.
The seat “ranges from east of San Antonio down to Brownsville, largely along the Gulf Coast before reaching the US-Mexico border,” CNN reported.
Democrat Rep. Filemon Vela resigned earlier this spring and the Republicans were fighting to take the seat.
Valley Central reported:
Mayra Flores is the unofficial winner as the United States representative for District 34.
Flores defeated Dan Sanchez, Juana ‘Janie’ Cantu-Cabrera, and Rene Coronado, receiving 14,780 votes.
Flores has won 51 percent of the election total. Because Flores received more than half the votes, there will be no need for a run-off.
Flores will assume former representative Filemon Vela’s seat and will be holding the position until January.
