One of the biggest stories of the 2022 midterms is the shift of Latino voters to Republicans.
People started talking about the change in early 2022. Then the election of Republican Latina Mayra Flores in Texas confirmed it was really happening.
MSNBC recently spoke to a Latino couple who explained why they are voting Republican.
FOX News has details:
Latina ex-Democrat tells MSNBC she switched parties because she’s for ‘God, country, family and hard work’
Latino voters in border states told MSNBC they were moving away from the Democratic Party this November, with some saying they identified more with the values of the Republican Party.
On “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” the journalist spoke with Latinos in Arizona and Texas to highlight the shift heading into the midterm elections. One Texas voter told the former Telemundo anchor that the party “has changed a lot” and she now identifies more with the Republican Party’s values.
“We’re for God, country, family and hard work,” Maria Batres told the MSNBC host.
Fellow Texas voter Jose Arreola told the network that he also became a Republican because he was most concerned about immigration and “beefing up border security.”
“The fact of the matter is, we don’t feel safe anymore,” the Texan told MSNBC.
