Did Nancy Pelosi Just Shove Mayra Flores’ Daughter?


Last week Republican Mayra Flores became the first Republican in over 100 years to win a Democratic district in texas.

As tradition Rep. Mayra Flores needed to be sworn in and at the ceremony House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was present.

Pelosi at the ceremony, however, did the unthinkable and elbowed one of Flores’ children.

It wasn’t a violent elbow but it was an elbow that shows her disgust for children.

Take a look:

The New York Post shared these details:

Mayra Flores was sworn in as the first Mexican-born member of Congress this week. And she did it as a Republican running in a Texas district that has only ever elected Democrats.

Flores, a 30-something mother of four, told me she was brought up with “strong conservative values that focused on faith, family and hard work.”

She won nearly 51% of the vote against her Democratic opponent’s 43% in the special election to replace Democrat Filemon Vela, who retired before his term ended.

She even earned the vote of Texas transplant and billionaire Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, who revealed on Twitter he had just made his first-ever vote for a Republican candidate: “I voted for Mayra Flores — first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022.”

Flores will serve out the remainder of Vela’s term and must face Democratic nominee Vicente Gonzalez in November’s general election to keep the seat. While her initial term will be short-lived (and she has a tough fight ahead of her in the general), her victory signifies the growing shift of Hispanic voters connecting with a more conservative message.
