Newly elected Mayra Flores on Democrats: ‘They feel entitled to our vote’

“The main issue is inflation,” Flores Bartiromo said as he discussed the issues driving the election. “Cost of living. Everyone is extremely angry, angry at the Biden administration over the rise in gasoline, groceries and medicine. It hurts them enormously, not just here in South Texas, but across the country. Of course, the border crisis is something we see here “It’s not something we need to be told by the news.”

Flores, who came to the United States from Mexico as a child, said she wanted to improve the immigration process for those who want to come to the country legally.

Her victory has been hailed as yet another sign that Latinos are increasingly switching to the Republican Party, even though it came with a warning – due to redistricting, she will compete in a redesigned version of her district against the Democratic rep. Vicente Gonzalez this fall. That district is seen as something more advantageous for Democratic candidates.

“I hope the DCCC learns their lesson with this before it happens across the country,” Gonzalez said after Flores’ victory Tuesday.

On Sunday, Flores expressed confidence in the fall campaign.

“Well honestly, it makes no difference,” she said. “I’m very confident in the work we’re doing in South Texas.”
