Republican pro-lifers and Trump supporters Maya Flores WON a House seat in the 34th congressional district, which is typically Democratic. With a Hispanic population of 84.5 percent, it is the second most Hispanic congressional district in the US.
Maya Flores is the first Mexican-born member of Congress.
LatinX, as the Democrats call it.
Flores is only the second Republican in the Rio Grande Valley in over a century to flip a majority-Democrat district.
It happened for the first time in 2010. The Hispanic demographic change is genuine!
Flores will also be Congress’s first Mexican-born member. What will McConnell’s reaction be to her?
The Democrats currently hold a five-seat majority.

Nancy Mace, a Republican, defeated her Trump-backed opponent in South Carolina. In her Lowcountry district, Rep. Nancy Mace narrowly defeated former state Rep. Katie Arrington in a Trump-fueled primary. She voted against impeaching Trump. Rice on the other hand did.

CNN predicts that Jim Marchant will win the Republican nomination for Secretary of State in Nevada.
Marchant, a former state assemblyman and 2020 congressional candidate, has been a prominent supporter of election fraud, even stating on his website that “overhaul the fraudulent election system in Nevada.”” will be his first goal.
Marchant filed a lawsuit alleging voter fraud after losing his 2020 congressional run to Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford, but it was eventually dropped.
CNN predicts that Adam Laxalt will win the Republican Senate nomination in Nevada.
A large list of conservative leaders, including former President Donald Trump, have endorsed the former state attorney general (Laxalt joined a lawsuit to challenge the 2020 election results in Nevada).
Army veteran Sam Brown, who sustained serious burns while serving in Afghanistan and received the state party’s endorsement, lost the primary to Laxalt.
