BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa late Tuesday released the following statement on the election results in the South Texas Congressional races – TX-28, TX-15, and TX-34:
“Tonight, Texas Republicans will tell you that picking up TX-15 shows that they’re gaining ground with Hispanics in South Texas. Let me be clear: that’s complete bullshit..."
"...It was in the one district that national Democratic organizations inexplicably decided to all but abandon for the final stretch of the campaign."
“There was no red wave in South Texas. There wasn’t even a red ripple. Republicans in Austin and D.C. should understand that if – even in a year where Republicans were supposed to win across the country in a landslide, they could barely eke out this one win here – they should probably pack up their bags and get the hell out of our region."
