Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk celebrated the Republican Party’s first win in a special election for South Texas on Tuesday, calling it “historic.” He also stated that an onslaught against Democrats is starting now.
Elon Musk celebrated the win of Texas Republican Mayra Flores, who ousted a Democrat in the country’s 34th Congressional District. The seat was previously occupied by Rep. Filemon Vela (D), who resigned earlier this year to pursue a lobbying career, as all indicators suggested an ugly midterm season for Democrats.
“I voted for Mayra Flores – it was the first time I’d ever cast my ballot for a Republican,” Musk wrote on Twitter. “In 2022, there’ll be a huge red wave.”
The Chronicle wrote that Flores “is the first Republican candidate in nearly 170 years to win a seat representing the Rio Grande Valley area,” and that she will be “the first congresswoman born in Mexico.”
Dr. Fernando is not the first Republican hopeful to make history in this election season, after Dr. Mehmet Oz won the GOP’s nomination for a Senate seat in Pennsylvania as Trump’s favorite surgeon. Oz would become the United States’ first Muslim senator if he were to be elected in the general election against far-left Dem John Fetterman, who recently had a stroke.
Rep. Flores replied to her victory with an announcement declaring, “My historic win will bring God back to the halls of Congress!”
“This victory is for the folks who have been overlooked for so long!” she added. “This is a message to the establishment that there will be no more tolerance! We’ve officially begun the red wave!! #TX34 God, Family, and Country.”
“The people of Texas and Congresswoman-Elect Mayra Flores have a message for Joe Biden,” she announced. “The RED Tsunami has arrived!”
The country’s southern border has been damaged by the Biden administration’s open border agenda, which has alienated many Hispanic voters who had previously voted for Democrats.
“The GOP has been eager to flip the seat during their new offensive in South Texas since Biden’s underperformance in the predominantly Hispanic area in the 2020 election. Flores and her supporters spent over $1 million on TV advertising in the special election,” according to The Texas Tribune. “The dynamic put Dems into an unusual spot in an area they have long dominated, as Sanchez said many times during debates. Vastly outspent by Flores, Sanchez frequently likened his race to a David vs. Goliath battle, with himself playing David.’”
