Rep. Mayra Flores, a Republican from Texas, won the 34th Congressional District special election. In the race for the 34th Congressional District, which was redrawn during the November midterm elections, Vicente Gonzalez (D.TX) will be her opponent.
Flores was invited to join “The Ingraham Angle” (FOX News) for a discussion on a variety of topics. One was about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, and her disconnect from the rest of America.
“AOC doesn’t represent the Hispanic community. It certainly does not represent Texas District34 and who we are. We don’t worry about Washington nonsense, Latinx. We are concerned about the cost of living, gas prices, food, and health care. This is what we worry about every day. We don’t wake up thinking about Washington. They are so disconnected. They think Washington D.C. is the center of the universe, which is a sad reality.”
Flores was talking about the left pushing the term “Latinx” when Hispanics have already said that “Latinx” offends them. As she pointed out, her attention has been on the real issues that affect the residents of Texas District 34: gas prices, health care, and cost of living.
Due to her campaign slogan, “God Family Country”, she also spoke out about the New York Times piece that was published on her.
“I don’t care at all about the New York Times. They don’t know anything about me or my culture.”
Flores also addressed the southern border and criticized the Biden administration in light of the border crisis.
The cartel has overthrown the law… It is illegal to cross illegally without paying thousands or thousands of dollars. Yes, there are children and women entering our country… But there are also terrorists coming into our nation, putting Americans in danger… I believe we have a serious problem but the Biden administration is to blame.
Flores was six years old when she came from Mexico to the United States. She is the first Mexican-born congresswoman in the country. Her husband is a Border Patrol agent. Flores is a huge boost for the GOP’s efforts to win Hispanic voters during the midterms. The GOP now has the momentum and the momentum to win the House in November.
