Texas Republican Mayra Flores stunned the country by winning a special election this past spring and Democrats are desperate to get that seat back.
Vicente Gonzalez, the Democrat running against Flores, has resorted to using dirty tricks to go after her.
He actually altered a photo of her to distort her image. This is what people do when they can’t win an argument on the issues.
Hot Air reports:
Democrat candidate in TX-34 race photoshops picture of Rep. Mayra Flores as an ugly smear
The Cook Political Report changed its rating in the Texas 34th Congressional District race from Leans Democrat to Toss-up. This race pits two sitting members of Congress against each other. Republican Rep. Mayra Flores is the incumbent in this race. Democrat Rep. Vicente Gonzalez is running against her because his former district, TX-15, west of TX-34, was re-drawn. This race is considered one of the most competitive races this cycle and one worth watching…
Needless to say, Democrats are not going down without a fight. This race has already been marred with ugliness. The campaign of Vicente Gonzalez purchased advertising on two blogs that ran racist and sexist remarks against Flores. Now a poorly photoshopped picture of Flores is up in an ad from the Gonzalez campaign. The topic of the ad is on school safety and gun control.
Flores cast her first congressional vote opposing the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. This was just weeks after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas in May. The 40-second ad features a photo originally posted on Mayra Flores’s Instagram account earlier this year. Her eyebrows are edited to give her an aggressive look.
Look at the tweet from Flores below:
First, Vicente Gonzalez hired a racist blogger to attack me for my heritage. Now Vicente is doing the dirty work himself with this shameless and pathetic photoshopping. https://t.co/5cMNOGQsyU pic.twitter.com/DukV8Wc1ZC

This is a tough race, but Mayra Flores can win it.
She did it once before.
