Retirement: Texas Democrats on Bill Flores Not Seeking Re-election
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Texas is the biggest battleground state. Republicans know it and Texas Democrats damn sure know it.
“Flores retired because he didn’t want to continue to serve in the minority, which he was bound to do again because of the efforts of the Texas Democratic Party, the DCCC, and elected Democratic leaders across the country.
“Flores is the fifth Texas Republican to retire in the past six weeks. Texas Republicans are running for the exits because they’d rather save face than be thrown out of office.”
