This excerpt from the Dallas Morning News about the GOP special election upset put’s it perfectly:
His workers knocked on 20,000 doors, made 100,000 calls and visited all 17 counties in the district in six weeks, Mackowiak said. A retired game warden with ties to South Texas, Flores ran as an anti-abortion, pro-gun Tejano. And he ran as though he wasn’t competing in a Democratic stronghold, while Republicans accused Gallego’s camp of taking Hispanic voters for granted.
“The Democrats just don’t get it. They are tone-deaf,” Blakemore said. “They think South Texas is a bunch of Hispanics who will do what they’re told.”
Of course with the Hispanic (I hate that phrase) community in the best economic shape they’ve ever seen they’re a lot less dependent on government and thus a lot less dependent on Democrats.
I think people like being free and I really think “Hispanic” immigrants who have lived in regimes where they have not been free before really know the difference.
That’s bad news for the left, which is why I can’t wait for election day.
