For those pro-Trump Republicans who are concerned about a supposed blue wave in November, hold back your tears! Democrats, and the mainstream media will likely sugar coat the story, or bury it altogether, but in Tuesday’s 19th District Special Election in Texas, we had a game changer.
It all started when Senator Carlos Uresti (TX-D) was convicted on 11 felony charges, and he was forced to relinquish his seat. Democrats were confident that the seat would be taken over by yet another democrat, because it was a seat that had not been held by a Republican for an incredible 139 years. In fact, My San Antonio reported that Andrew Phelps McCormick was the last Republican to hold this seat, and he left office in 1879. Also, the 19th district was a district that voted against Trump, and for Hillary Clinton won by 12 points in 2016.
Then on Tuesday, Republican Pete Flores became the first Republican unseat the democrat party in the 19th district for 139 years, as he crushed former state and U.S. Representative Democrat Pete Gallego by 6% (53% to 47%).

My San Antonio reported:
Voters elected political newcomer Pete Flores to the Texas Senate on Tuesday, flipping a Democratic district red for the first time in 139 years and further bolstering Republicans’ supermajority in the chamber ahead of the November elections.
A retired game warden, Flores defeated former state and U.S. Rep. Pete Gallego for the Senate District 19 seat after receiving backing from some of the state’s most prominent politicians, including Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and U.S. Sens John Cornyn and Ted Cruz.
“We conservatives are conservative in the way we make approaches. The gun fight’s not over until the last shot’s fired,” Flores told the Express-News after Gallego conceded in a phone call just before 9 p.m. “The last shot’s been fired.”
Flores’ win marked an incredible upset in a district that political observers said shouldn’t have been competitive for Republicans. Low turnout in special elections and high-level GOP interests in preserving a Senate supermajority helped push Flores across the line, they said.
Meanwhile, as socialist California has a Trump endorsed John Cox showing a lead over the democrat rival, and traditionally blue states like Minnesota tiring of the democrats shift to the socialist end of the spectrum. Combine that with the fact that the economy is booming, Americans confidence in the economy is skyrocketing, unemployment has evaporated to the lowest levels in history for not just whites, but blacks, hispanics, women, and everyone else across the board, and President Trump is fulfilling his campaign promises in his ‘Contract With America’, the November midterms are looking very promising for Republicans, at least ‘America First’ republicans.
As EvansNewsReport.com has been calling since the middle of 2017, an ‘America First’ wave is coming in November. Now, multiple experts now agree that the supposed ‘blue wave’ has diminished and a ‘Republican wave is immanent. Experts like Newt Gingrich, who say that “there will be a red wave this fall.”
Newt Gingrich said that there are four building blocks favoring Republicans, and each of those blocks appear to be falling into place. For example…
- United States Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has been mired in corruption charges. Charges that are indefensible, and they have been highly publicized throughout New Jersey. . The Senate Ethics Committee admonished Menendez in April for serious corruption allegations. With his election victory by Democrats, it leaves him extremely weakened and vulnerable to an election loss to the Republicans. Menendez would have likely lost to his Democrat rival, but there wasn’t enough time to meet the campaign funds reporting requirements. Consequently, it will set up Republican Bob Hugin, a former pharmaceutical executive, to face him in November. Hugin is expected to run a well-funded campaign. Worst case scenario, this puts New Jersey in play for the Republicans, and draws millions of dollars away from other races. Even worse for the Democrats, if they lose the seat, there is no possibility for the Party to win control of the Senate.
- Second, Republican John Cox is running in November against Democrat Lt. Governor, and former San Francisco mayor, Gavin Newsom. Due to expected Republican turnout, the governor’s race is now expected to be competitive. Also, with Cox on the ballot, it will likely be a larger draw for Republican turnout. Consequently, it could make the difference in the Republicans winning a number of House seats. Combine that with unpopular policies in California like protection of MS-13 gangs, enormous gasoline tax hikes, sanctuary city policies, and more, it could spell substantial problems for Democrats this fall, leaving them more vulnerable than they have been in more than 20 years.
- Then, there is Minnesota. Surprisingly, the Democrats not only pushed their Party even more left, but they went full Communist! Democrats snubbed Attorney General Swanson, and in return, she decided to run for governor. A move that many analysts like Barry Casselman claim will result in former Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty to win the election and take back his former title. AG Swanson’s last-minute move also opened up the Attorney General position, which resulted in Keith Ellison becoming the Democrat AG nominee. A move that will not likely be well received by the overall Minnesota voter. In addition, with Republican Tim Pawlenty running as governor, it will likely create a vacuum that makes it easier for the Republican’s to win House seats, making Pelosi’s opportunity for taking the reigns of the House less likely. Also, with the chaos erupting throughout the Minnesota Democrat Party, and as the Party becomes more radically left, United States Senator Tina Smith, who replaced disgraced Al Franken could very well be at risk. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is certain. The Democrats will have to spend a small fortune to try to win seats in Minnesota, just like California. Consequently, it will drain resources that they desperately need to fight for other vulnerable seats like Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill’s seat, as well as others throughout the nation that would otherwise be safe.
- Finally, President Trump’s massive and growing list of accomplishments that are now showing to benefit the average American. For example, the economy is booming, there are more jobs than unemployed Americans, wages are rising, overtime is becoming commonplace, black unemployment is at the lowest level in history, women unemployment is at historical lows, manufacturing is returning to the United States, American’s savings are going up, debt is going down, the United States trade deficit is going down, the United States national debt is dropping, and American’s are being put first above the Political Elitists, Corporate Elitists, Hollywood Elitists, and others who believe that they should be put before the average American. Even the Progressive Anti-Trump New York Times ran the headline, “We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are.”
Amazingly, President Trump’s economy is reminiscent of former President Ronald Reagan’s economic growth, and more than double former President Obama’s numbers. American’s now feel that their lives are better off today, than they were just a few years ago. As a result, a phenomenon is beginning to emerge that is creating the perfect storm for Republicans this fall. A phenomenon that is putting Republicans on top in polling numbers. A trend that has shifted from the blue wave, to an ‘America First’ wave. Furthermore, if the trend continues, which looks likely, it will lead America to a massive ‘America First’ wave in November. A wave that looks likely to continue into 2020, where President Trump will likely be re-elected with a margin that would send the Progressive’s into a state of panic, and a wave that would make 2016 look like small potatoes, as Americans finally are willing to put the needs of America and Americans first!
