Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), according to Fox News, recently claimed that Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) and her supporters "stole" the special election that was held in June.
Gonzalez's comments came during a "vote blue" event that was held at the Shotz bar in Brownsville, Texas, on Thursday.
There, Gonzalez said:
Our democracy is at stake. There's millions and millions of dollars from outside our region and outside our state that are coming here to try to steal our elections and take away your value and take away the process that we rely on, which is elections. And, we don't have the resources to compete with these outside resources. We can't compete with the Koch brothers, we can't compete with big oil, and big tobacco, and the NRA. They can outspend us, but they can't outwork us.
Gonzalez, then, turned his attention to Flores.
"They stole that last election," Gonzalez said. "They spent $3 million to our $250,000, they campaigned for two years, and they still only won by less than one percent. So, the way to turn this around is getting out and vote."
Isn't this the kind of rhetoric that led to former President Donald Trump and countless Republicans getting censored by Big Tech, the mainstream media, and others?
And, didn't President Joe Biden just recently say, "I do think anyone who . . . refuses to acknowledge an election . . . is a threat to democracy"?
Gonzalez is facing off against Flores in the upcoming general election, which will determine who will represent Texas 34th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The election will take place on Nov. 8.
