Democrats have more reason to be worried about November’s midterm election after two Texas judges switched to become registered Republicans.
Two female judges, who have been long-term members of the Democratic Party, are now running for reelection as Republicans. They cite the damage done their communities by the millions of illegal aliens who have surged across the southern border under the Biden administration immigration policy.

In a report from The Center Square’s Bethany Blankley, Terrell County Judge Dale Carruthers and Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara — two females in Texas border communities — said they are sick and tired of Biden’s open border policies destroying their small communities.
“The single reason they switched parties, they say, is because the Biden administration’s policies led to more than 2 million people coming through the southern border from over 150 countries. The costs of crime stemming from an open border – increased trafficking and smuggling of people, weapons, and guns – to their communities has prompted them to say, “enough is enough” and do something about it,” Blankley wrote.
At a campaign event, Carruthers said, “I come from a Hispanic heritage, which was prominently Democrat. The chaos at the border and everything that’s been going on make me realize that I needed to switch parties. I am very happy to be a Republican and to represent this great state of Texas as a judge.”
“I’ve been a Democrat since 1992,” Guevara said. “I’ve always ran as a Democrat and this is my first year to run as a Republican. I’m very grateful for Gov. Abbott for all he has done for Texas and continues to do for Texas, especially with our border crisis.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing serious political headwinds heading into November’s midterm elections.
Fifty-five members of Congress are not running for re-election this year, which breaks down to 6 U.S. Senators and 49 House lawmakers.
Of those 49 House lawmakers who will not run for re-election, 32 of them are Democrats.
Democrats currently hold a slender nine-person majority in Congress with four vacant seats. Political experts expect House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to retire if Republicans regain control of the lower legislative body in the midterm election.
