First Lady Jill Biden really stepped in it, and she could be the catalyst for a conservative victory in an embattled Texas congressional race.
Republican Congressional candidate Cassy Garcia running in the heavily Hispanic 28th district has announced a new t-shirt design inspired by First Lady Jill Biden after she compared the diversity of Hispanics to tacos.
Garcia posted a picture of her wearing the shirt on social media, saying, “unique as a taco.” The GOP candidate also used the post to jab at her Democrat opponent, writing, “help me beat Joe Biden’s ‘Latinx’ puppet.”
“Woke Democrats think Hispanics are tacos. Unfortunately for them, we’re voters,” Garcia captioned the post.
“Help me beat Joe Biden’s ‘Latinx’ puppet,” she added, referring to her opponent, incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX).
Cuellar has his own problems after members of his own party wanted him gone because he is pro-life. The pro-life Democrat barely survived a primary against an AOC-supported candidate.

The t-shirt was inspired by a gaffe-laden speech made by the First Lady at the “LatinX IncluXion” luncheon at the UnidosUS 2022 Annual Conference in San Antonio.
“But we can’t get those things on our own,” Jill proclaimed. “Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community — as distinct as the bogidas (sic) of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio — is your strength.”
In several tight border district races, a common theme from Republicans is that Democrats are just virtue signaling for their vote and don’t really care about their community.
First Lady Jill Biden may have just proven their point on top of the chaos at the border that is straining local communities. All of this is a catalyst that could result in conservative candidates flipping traditional blue districts.
