“民主党已经放弃了我们的价值观. 我们是亲神, 亲生命, 亲家庭, 所有关于努力工作. 它在我们的 DNA 上, 我们很保守, 这些价值观确实与共和党一致,” Flores told Fox News Digital backstage at CPAC Texas.
Flores is the first Republican Latina ever elected to Congress from Texas, and she is also the first female Mexican-born member of the House of Representatives. After winning a special election for the 34th Congressional District earlier this year, she faces an uphill battle in November against current 15th Congressional District Rep. 维森特·冈萨雷斯（Vicente Gonzalez）, 德州, after a newly redrawn map favoring him. 同时, a variety of news organizations including CNN, Axios, MSNBC, CBS and NBC News have put a spotlight on Hispanic voters fleeing the Democratic Party in recent years.
“The current administration is doing a horrible job. They’re hurting us tremendously,” 她说, adding that Hispanic voters are suffering financially under Biden.
最近几周, a group linked to liberal billionaire George Soros has taken steps to purchase Spanish-language talk radio stations throughout the country. Attacks by The New York Times and other outlets on Flores and other Latina congressional hopefuls have also ramped up, but the Republican lawmaker believes she knows why the left appears to be targeting Hispanic voters.
“It is a sign that they are concerned,” Flores said. “And they should be, but we’re unstoppable. And it’s too late. We’re going to keep on putting pressure on, getting the message across for our district, across the state, across the country.”
She feels it’s important that the Hispanic community knows what they’re voting for, but doesn’t think Soros’ group and mainstream media outlets will affect upcoming elections no matter how hard they try.
“They’re very disconnected, they really don’t understand our culture,” 她说. “They think we’re going to support the far-left ideals, it’s not who we are. It just doesn’t work in the Hispanic community, so I really think that they’re just wasting their time and their money.”
Flores, along with Texas Congressional candidates Cassy Garcia and Monica De La Cruz were dismissed as “far-right Latinas” in a news article in the New York Times last month. 上个星期, a guest on MSNBC declared Asian, Latino and African-American GOP voters were pushing White supremacy and isolationist rhetoric. 然而, Flores believes ignoring her critics is a path to success.
‘To be honest with you, 我不在乎,” 她说. “No one cares, we are focused on the issues that matter in South Texas. That matter throughout the country. We all wanted better economic opportunities, and we’re hurting tremendously.”
