    Cassy Garcia, a Republican running for Congress in Texas' heavily Hispanic 28th district, showcased a new shirt Tuesday inspired by first lady Jill Biden's recent comments comparing the diversity of the Hispanic community to breakfast tacos.

    Garcia, a lifelong Texan and Mexican-American, posted a picture on Twitter that showed her wearing the new shirt that reads "unique as a taco." She also used the opportunity to take a shot at her Democrat opponent in the upcoming congressional election.

    "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 in reference to her opponent incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX).

    During a speech at the "Latinx IncluXion Luncheon" in San Antonio, Texas, on Monday, the first lady talked about Hispanics in a remark she would later apologize for. Biden told the audience that the Hispanic community's diversity is "as distinct as the [bodegas] of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength."

    Garcia is now highlighting the first lady's recent comments on Hispanics to point out what she sees as a deeper problem within the Democratic Party.

    "Jill Biden said the quiet part out loud yesterday. Woke Democrats don't know us or our culture. Their understanding of Hispanics goes no deeper than a taco. Unfortunately for them, we're voters," Garcia told The Daily Wire. "CNN and The New York Times attack me because I'm fighting for the people of my community. Hispanics want a strong economy, safe communities for our families, and an end to the chaos at the border - not the radical policies of Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats, like Henry Cuellar."

    Garcia defeated her GOP opponent Sandra Whitten in a runoff election in May. Her matchup with Cuellar, who barely fended off a primary challenge from Jessica Cisneros, is expected to give Democrats a scare as the Party faces a predicted "Red tsunami" in the November midterm elections.
