Simply The Starting
Mayra Flores might should put up with the likes of Jerry McHale and his offensive weblog for some time. Flores gained a particular election final month to finish the time period of Rep. Filamon Vela (D-TX), who resigned to take a job with a lobbying agency.
Flores can be up for reelection in November and can face Gonzalez. That could be extra of an uphill battle. November’s election can be held with new district strains having been drawn for Texas’ 34th Congressional District. The brand new district leans extra closely Democrat.
And whereas Vicente Gonzalez says he didn’t have something to do with the demeaning weblog posts, in an interview with Newsweek after Flores’ win, he mentioned, “I wasn’t born in Mexico … I didn’t come right here by way of chain migration, I didn’t come by way of asylum or amnesty or no matter.” Gonzalez additionally referred to as Flores “unqualified,” a doubtful declare coming from a celebration starring the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
