The media and Democrats want Americas to believe that they have the momentum. However, if one looks at special elections the Democrat ticket is a losing one. The latest defeat was for a Texas State Senate seat that has been held by Democrats since 1879. Republican Pete Flores, a newcomer to politics, won handily. In the Presidential election of 2016 Hillary Clinton carried District 19 by 12 points.
In the Gateway Pundit column “Republican Wins Texas Special Election… In District Hillary Won by 12 Percentage Points!” Cristina Laila reports:
Republican Pete Flores won the Senate District 19 seat in Texas on Tuesday–a crushing defeat for former state and U.S. Rep. Democrat Pete Gallego.
Flores and Gallego went head-to-head in the special election to replace former State Senator Carlos Uresti who lost his seat after he was convicted of 11 felony charges.
This district has not seen a Republican hold the seat in 139 years.
Andrew Phelps McCormick was the last Republican to hold this seat and he left office in 1879, reported My San Antonio.
My San Antonio reported:
Voters elected political newcomer Pete Flores to the Texas Senate on Tuesday, flipping a Democratic district red for the first time in 139 years and further bolstering Republicans’ supermajority in the chamber ahead of the November elections.
A retired game warden, Flores defeated former state and U.S. Rep. Pete Gallego for the Senate District 19 seat after receiving backing from some of the state’s most prominent politicians, including Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and U.S. Sens John Cornyn and Ted Cruz.
What is interesting is the the real story is within the Democratic Party. Primaries in New York with socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Florida with socialist Andrew Gillum show the rise of the Marxist/Leninist wing of what was once the party of JFK.
Socialism is the Swamp, just ask the people of Valenzuela.
America First Policies, a conservative non-profit group associated with America First Action, President Donald Trump’s primary super PAC, released an ad Wednesday attacking the political establishment. The ad will run nationally on Fox News Channel on multiple shows, including “Fox & Friends” and “Hannity.”
The 30-second spot, “Anonymous,” blasts Washington insiders and includes video footage of Nancy Pelosi and former President Obama, and features the New York Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior administration official.
“President Trump is shaking up Washington and the establishment doesn’t like it,” the narrator says. “Resorting to anonymous leaks and cowardly attacks. D.C. insiders betraying our president.”
The ad also touches on Trump’s economic record and includes positive headlines from the New York Times and the Washington Post, while the narrator touts “the best economy in decades. Record jobs. Wages up. Historic tax cuts. Bad trade deals coming to an end.”
“More than 62 million Americans voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and they recognize the historic accomplishments of this administration despite the constant leaks and tabloid stories from D.C. insiders,” said America First Policies president Brian Walsh in a statement provided to CBS News.
The group said it is spending $350,000 on the ad, which will run for one week ending on Sept. 26. This is a separate buy from the $12.5 million the group announced in August for midterm ad buys in 10 House races and two Senate races.
