A special election is taking place in south Texas this month and a Hispanic Republican candidate named Mayra Flores is surging.
Democrats already have a problem with Latino voters deserting them for the Republican party, and Flores is a constant reminder of that.
If Flores wins, it will be seen as a symbol of what’s coming in November.

South Texas: Democrats ‘Sweat’ as Republican Mayra Flores Surges in Special Election
Democrats are starting to fear that their weak support in South Texas is getting worse — with a special election just two weeks away — as Hispanic voters have fled to the Republican Party.
In an important prelude to the November elections, Republicans are well-positioned to flip the seat that once belonged to former Democrat Rep. Filemon Vela in the special election on June 14, putting another nail in the coffin of the Democrat majority in the House.
In recent years, the Hispanic community has been slowly moving toward the Republican party as everyday voters — especially Hispanic voters — have become increasingly frustrated with one-party, Democrat rule in Washington, DC. With the Special Election coming up, a Republican organization is trying to take advantage of these gains — especially in South Texas — by dumping money and resources into these communities to get them out to vote.
Politico noted that a Republican victory in the special election would further reduce “Pelosi’s already minuscule majority and send a jolt of momentum through the GOP’s bid to turn the entire Rio Grande Valley red in the midterms.”
Flores could win this race!
The biggest congressional race in the nation is happening right NOW! We can make history by flipping the 1st seat this year & send a strong message to the radical left
