Hispanic Voters Are Finding a Home in the GOP

📷: Mayra Flores for Congress

National GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel joined Newsmax’s Wake Up America this week to discuss how Hispanic voters are moving into the GOP fold. The chairwoman’s interview followed Republican Mayra Flores special election victory in a South Texas congressional district that is overwhelmingly Hispanic — and that Joe Biden won just two years ago.

CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL:  “Yeah, I think it sends shockwaves to Democrats to see a Republican win in a district that you know, Democrats have taken for granted. And really, the Democrats have taken Hispanic vote for granted in states like Texas and Florida and Arizona, and you’re seeing movement to the Republican Party. The RNC had 30 community centers open in Hispanic, Asian and Black communities across the country for the past year. But this is a big, big win. One county, I’ll just give you an example, Cameron County, the congressman who who held the district before the Democrat won it by 30 points and 2020 and Mayra Flores just won that county by two points. That is a huge shift and part of her victory.” 
FINNERTY: “So you don’t think this is an anomaly that a Republican can win in one of the bluest district’s historically in this entire country?”
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: “I don’t. You know, we just won mayor’s race in McAllen, Texas, also in 2021. So this is a trend that we’re seeing. You look at people like Tony Gonzalez, who won in 2020, you look at Elvira Salazar and Carlos Jimenez, who won in the Miami area of Florida in 2020. They increased by 25 points for Republicans in that part of the state. So, we’re seeing a movement that started under President Trump but it’s continuing into these midterms. I think Democrats should be afraid. And why is it? Hispanic voters care about work, education, family values, religious freedom, things that the Republican Party is fighting for right now.”
