Mayra Flores did the unthinkable as she became the first Republican in a century and a half to win an election for the House of Representatives in South Texas, and she has one very famous voter who cast his ballot for her.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk celebrated her victory on Tuesday night, proclaiming that a “massive red wave” was coming for the Democrats in November.

“I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022,” he said.

“Welcome to the Republican Party! We welcome all walk aways from all walks of life. The party of opportunity, prosperity, and freedom is here to stay. We look forward to working together and building a better future for all of America,” the new Congresswoman responded.

“Elon, is this the first time that has happened with you where you’re receiving massive amounts of hate by the top Democrat leaders (Biden, Sanders, AOC, Warren, etc)? Cause when Obama was running the office he used to support the work Tesla & SpaceX were doing,” a twitter user said to the CEO to which he replied “Yes.”

Another questioned if Musk would vote for a Republican president in 2024 to which he responded “TBD” (to be determined).

“First and foremost I thank God for the blessing of the opportunity to serve the people of Texas’ 34th Congressional District,” Flores told Fox News Digital in a statement. “I am also grateful to my family for their unwavering love and support throughout this campaign, and to the voters of South Texas for entrusting me to represent them in Washington. I look forward to standing strong for our conservative values of faith, family, and freedom and to earning the opportunity to serve our community further in the months to come,” the new Congresswoman said.

Fox News reported.

Flores, who had 51% of the vote to Democratic candidate Dan Sanchez’ 43% when The Associated Press called the race, will become the first Mexican-born congresswoman to serve in the House. Her family moved to the United States when she was 6 years old.

Flores will finish out the remainder of Vela’s term, which expires in January, and Republicans were eager to win the seat and gain new ground in the Lone Star state to represent the district that spans east of San Antonio with parts along the coast to Brownsville. As currently drawn, the 34th Congressional District will essentially be dissolved later this year after a newly redrawn map favoring current 15th Congressional District Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, the Democratic nominee for November’s general election to represent the 34th District, was constructed…

Ahead of the election, the two front-runners in the race for a short term on Capitol Hill were Sanchez, a former Cameron County commissioner, a Democrat, and health care worker Flores, a Republican who outspent Sanchez and gained steam in the race for the seat that has been vacant for more than two months.

Sanchez, a pro-life Democrat who ran in the election, was largely outspent by Flores and did not receive much support on a national level. Earlier this month, it was revealed that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), despite its overwhelming support for abortion, forked out thousands of dollars in an ad partnership with Sanchez.

“I woke up this morning still feeling surreal from everything that’s happened over the last 24 hours. Earning Elon Musk’s vote was just the icing on the cake and I can’t wait to work with his team! The American Dream is worth fighting for,” Flores said on Twitter on Wednesday in a tweet where she tagged Musk.
