Maya Flores, the recently elected GOP Rep., spoke with Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” about her victory.
“So, you flipped a seat in an 84 percent Hispanic district that has been Democrat-run for 100 years?” Bartiromo inquired. “What happened?”
Flores said, “Well, to be honest with you, South Texas has always been conservative.” “It’s all about faith, family, and hard work for us.” “We are exactly who we say we are.”
“But the Democrat Party took us for granted,” she continued. “They feel entitled to our vote, making the same promises over and over, and really not making nothing happen. And I honestly had enough. I was really fed up with the compadrismo here in South Texas. And that’s the reason why I decided to run.”
“And, of course, the Republican Party is investing now in South Texas. And that helps us significantly in getting the funding out there to the entire district to be able to tell them that the Republican Party is fighting for their values, that Mayra Flores is fighting for their values, values that are worth fighting for,” she added.
