Republicans won a seat in the House on Tuesday after Mayra Flores won a by-election to replace a seat previously held by Democrats in Texas.

Flores defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez, who represents the state's 34th congressional district, with nearly 51 to 43% of the vote and 97% of the vote.

Former Vice Chair of the Republican Democratic National Committee, Democratic Representative. 

Filemon Vela was replaced at the end of March by a job at law and lobbying firm Akin Gump.

Flores, who worked as a health care worker, campaigned for her husband's job as a leading candidate in the early elections

Acting as attorney, Sanchez lags behind Flores in fundraising and has not aired any ads.

The floor under the old lines in the district will have a seat until January.

A general election will be held in November to find out who represents the new 34th district, which is more favorable to Democrats than the current district.

The candidates for this competition have already been decided in the usual preliminary process: Flores will face Democrat Vicente Gonzalez on the new line.
