WASHINGTON (September 14, 2018) -- The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) announced  today that Alexander Flores was named a key candidate in their “18 in ’18: Races to Watch – Hispanic Heritage Month Edition.” Flores was chosen by the RSLC as a rising star who will represent the full diversity of his district and the nation as part of their Future Majority Project (FMP), aimed at identifying, recruiting and supporting new diverse candidates at the state level.

“I am honored to receive the distinction as an “18 in ‘18” candidate to watch by the RSLC,” said Flores. “Washington County’s rich diversity is one of our greatest strengths, and I believe in a bright future for our community more than ever after talking with hundreds of voters across the district. I will take that same spirit with me to Salem to help us solve the real challenges facing our community and our state.”

Flores, a senior supply chain analyst running for the Oregon Senate in western Washington and a strong advocate for children and education, leads the Centro Cultural de Washington County, a nonprofit serving the county’s Latino families with cultural, career and civic programs. Flores is leading a community-centric campaign and hopes to prevent tax hikes on low and middle-income families and secure more dollars for classrooms.

“Republicans at the state level would not be reaching historical highs, without key candidates like Alexander Flores. As we celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, the RSLC is bringing attention to outstanding Future Majority Project (FMP) and Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) candidates of Hispanic heritage running in critical races,” said Matt Walter, President of the Republican State Leadership Committee.
