    Billionaire Elon Musk celebrated a historic win by the Republican Party Tuesday night in a special election in South Texas, saying it was the first time he had ever voted for the party. He also said it was the start of the onslaught that Democrats are going to face in the upcoming midterms.

    Musk celebrated the victory of Republican Mayra Flores, who flipped a U.S. House seat in Texas' 34th Congressional District by beating Democrat Dan Sanchez. The seat was previously held by Rep. Filemon Vela (D), who stepped down earlier this year to become a lobbyist, as all signs pointed to a brutal upcoming midterm election season for Democrats.

    "I voted for Mayra Flores - first time I ever voted Republican," Musk tweeted. "Massive red wave in 2022."

    Flores is now "the first GOP candidate to represent that area of the Rio Grande Valley since 1870," the Houston Chronicle reported, and she will be "the first congresswoman born in Mexico."

    Flores is not the first Republican candidate to make history this election cycle, after Trump-endorsed celebrity surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz won the party's nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. Oz is now the first Muslim to be nominated for a U.S. Senate seat by a major American political party, and would become the nation's first Muslim senator if he were to win in the general election against far-Left Democrat John Fetterman, who recently suffered a stroke.

    Flores responded to her victory with a statement saying that her "historic win will bring back God to the halls of Congress!"

    "This win is for the people who were ignored for so long!" she continued. "This is a message that the establishment will no longer be tolerated! We have officially started the red wave!! #TX34 God, Family, Country."

    "Congresswoman-Elect Mayra Flores and the people of Texas have a message for Joe Biden!" she added. "The RED Tsunami is here!"

    The region has been devastated by Democrat President Joe Biden's border crisis, something that has turned off many Hispanic voters that typically have voted for Democrats in the past.

    "Republicans have been eager to flip the seat as part of their new offensive in South Texas after Biden's underperformance throughout the predominantly Hispanic region in the 2020 election. Flores and her allies spent over $1 million on TV ads in the special election," the Texas Tribune reported. "The dynamic put Democrats into an unusual underdog position in a region of the state they have long dominated. Vastly outspent by Flores, Sanchez repeatedly compared the special election to a David vs. Goliath fight, with himself playing David."
