(Alexandria, VA) Convergence Media congratulates former Congresswoman Mayra Flores for securing victory in the Republican primary election in Texas’ 34th Congressional District and taking one more step towards returning to Congress.  

“Mayra made history as the first Mexican-born female ever elected to Congress back in 2022,” Convergence Founder Mike Shields said. “And she will make history again in November by defeating Vincente Gonzalez and continuing her mission to give a voice to the voiceless. From growing up in cotton fields to working in health care to serving in Congress, Mayra Flores’ American dream is an inspiring story for everyone in South Texas.”

Mayra made national headlines in 2022 as the first Mexican-born female to be elected to Congress, flipping a majority-Hispanic Democratic seat in the Rio Grande Valley for the first time in over 100 years. Mayra is a former respiratory care practitioner who is married to a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
