Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa Releases Statement on Results of Special Election in CD-34

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Today, Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement on the results of the Special Election in CD-34:

“Despite flooding South Texas with over three million dollars in far-right dark money – in a special election called by the Governor at a time specifically chosen to give Republicans an overwhelming advantage – Republicans could barely squeak out a win in CD-34.

“Tonight’s disappointing news aside, we applaud Dan Sanchez and his team for their hard-fought grassroots campaign – and for exposing the truth about the Republicans who purchased this seat: that they’re just using the working-class Hispanic families of the Rio Grande Valley as pawns in their partisan culture wars.

“In January 2023, this seat will rightfully return to Democratic hands.”
