Congresswoman-elect Mayra Flores stopped by Fox & Friends to discuss her historic win in Texas’ 34th Congressional District, flipping the seat red for the first time in more than 100 years.
“It’s not just about me, it’s about the people here in Texas District 34 that deserve prosperity in this area,” Flores told Fox & Friends.”We’ve been taken for granted for a long time. Unfortunately, the Democrat Party feels entitled to our vote. And I don’t care what side you’re on, you must earn the vote of the people that elect you to be in that position.”
From Fox News…
Flores won the race for the historically blue Texas District 34 Wednesday. Her victory marks the first Mexican-born woman to serve in Congress.
Flores’ family came to the U.S. when she was only six years old, but she still has family living in Mexico. She shared her family’s excitement at her success.
“My father and my mother have been the most supportive parents. I wouldn’t be here without them,” she said.
“I want more children like myself to have that experience,” Flores said regarding her move to the U.S. “I had an amazing experience coming here to the United States, and it shouldn’t be a rare experience.”
One of the many people to vote Flores into office was world’s richest man Elon Musk, who tweeted. “”I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022.”
