This qualifies as a political earthquake. In a special primary election to fill out the term of former Rep. Filemon Vela, who resigned his House seat in March, GOP candidate Mayra Flores received 50.98% of the vote, making a runoff election unnecessary. Re-elect Flores will represent the Texas 34 Congressional District that runs along the Gulf Coast to the Mexican border, and which is 84.54% Hispanic.:snip:

Democrats frosty to GOP Rep.-elect Mayra Flores while fighting among themselves

Kate Scanlon, Congressional Reporter

 June 17, 2022 01:03 PM

A group of House Democrats isn't exactly giving a warm welcome to Republican Rep.-elect Mayra Flores.

The South Texas conservative activist won a special election this week for an open Rio Grande Valley House district. The 34th Congressional District special election win has spurred Republican hopes of winning more majority Latino seats in November. South Texas is a longtime Democratic bastion, and Flores's victory, combined with competitive races in neighboring districts, suggests the party's dominance there is fading away.

Flores's flip specifically frustrated some House Democrats, and their frustrations played out on social media after Flores posted an inaccurate tweet.
