Mayra Flores tweeted “The RED WAVE did not happen” late on November 8 as it became clear she would lose out to Democrat Vicente Gonzalez in Texas’s 34th district.
Texas reporter Carolina Colmenares posted footage from slightly earlier, in which Flores said, “We are still pending thousands of votes, but it doesn’t look our way.”
Flores thanked the crowd, saying that she would be “forever grateful” for their support.
“Republicans and Independents stayed home,” Flores later tweeted. Credit: Carolina Colmenares via Storyful
