Democrats breathed a sigh of relief last week and started boasting that they’re in great shape after they pulled out all the stops and won a special election in a New Mexico Congressional district that they won in 2020 by 23 points. Well, not so fast…
Saturday, there was a mayoral election in McAllen, Texas, a border city with an 85% Hispanic population. In a surprise, the mayor’s seat flipped from Democrat to Republican GOP county chairman Javier Villalobos.
Analysts say it may be a sign that Hispanics who supported Trump aren’t just Trump voters and have shifted away from the Democrats. Or it may be a sign that they’ve seen up close and personal the disaster wrought by Biden’s open border policies. Either way, it’s good news for the people of McAllen, but bad news for the Democrats.
