Brilliant. Kimberly Klacik is a star. The GOP better make sure that she is a featured speaker at that their convention next week. Turning out Black voters will result in a landslide win for Trump and the GOP.
GOP congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik’s viral ad dwarfs viewership of Michelle Obama speech
By DISRN, August 19, 2020
A recent campaign ad created by Republican congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik has gone viral, racking up millions of views within hours of its release. The ad chronicles the physical and economic ruin that has been experienced by countless Democrat-run cities like her home town of Baltimore, Maryland.
Democrats don’t want you to see this.
They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat run cities.

“Democrats don’t want you to see this,” Klacik begins.
Klacik highlights crumbling infastructure and crime in Baltimore and points to Democrats for their failure to improve life in Baltimore after controlling its government for 53 years. And, she argues, it’s the same story around the country.
“The worst place for a black person to live in America is a Democrat-controlled city. It’s 2020, name a blue city where black people’s lives have gotten better,” Klacik says in the ad. “Democrats think black people are stupid. They think they can control us forever, that we won’t demand better, that we’ll keep voting for them, forever, despite what they’ve done to our families and our communities. Are they right?”
She concludes with a tagline directly targeting black voters who have traditionally supported the Democratic Party in large numbers: “Because all black lives matter, Baltimore matters, and black people don’t have to vote Democrat.”
The attention drawn by the provocative ad dwarfed the response generated by former First Lady Michelle Obama in her Democratic National Convention speech given the same night.

Though Klacik’s ad has taken the internet by storm, she is an underdog in her race for the Maryland 7th Congressional district seat, which was previously occupied by the late Elijah Cummings. Former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume, previously derailed by sexual harassment accusations following an affair with a staffer, won the special election for the seat in April and will face Klacik in the heavily Democratic district.
