“Time To Switch Hands” – Pro-Trump Candidate Kim Klacik Says Liberals Ruined Baltimore, by Tyler Durden

Kim Klacik leads a small band of brave black Republicans who are challenging Democrats in what have traditionally been Democratic urban strongholds. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Baltimore congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik could be the next face of the Republican Party – and if she wins a Congressional seat on Nov. 3, it would be the first time in more than fifty years Republicans controlled Maryland’s 7th District.

Klacik’s popularity exploded after President Trump shared her campaign video on Twitter, which criticized the Democratic leadership of Baltimore City with a huge African American population (see: here & here). She even appeared at the Republican National Convention and made several television appearances, raising $6.5 million from Jul. 1 through Sept. 30.

Here’s the video Trump re-tweeted that pushed Klacik into the spotlight:

“…and black people don’t have to vote Democrat,” Klacik said in the short video.

Klacik is running for late Rep. Elijah Cummings’ old seat in a race against Rep. Kweisi Mfume. She routinely accuses Democrats in Baltimore of abandoning the black community. Most of her fame comes from videos of her speaking to the camera as she walks the poorest and most dangerous neighborhoods of the city, or maybe even the country, littered with abandoned homes, dormant factories, and opioid clinics.

“End School To Prison Pipeline” – New Kim Klacik Ad Highlights How Liberals Destroyed Baltimore, by Tyler Durden

Kim Klacik is a welcome breath of fresh air in politics. She’s put together a great video, embedded in the linked story. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Readers may recall, in mid-August, we pointed out Kim Klacik, the GOP congressional candidate from Baltimore, is attempting to take late Elijah Cummings’ congressional seat in Maryland’s 7th congressional district.

However, there just one problem, she’s a Republican, nevertheless, a young black millennial, who has been embraced by President Trump and top Republicans.

For more color on Maryland’s 7th District, which covers the northern and eastern boundaries of Baltimore County, the majority of Howard County, and a decent chunk of eastern and western parts of Baltimore City, which have been dominated by Democrats for a little more than half a century.

Klacik was propelled into the spotlight in August when her campaign released a video of her walking the streets of Baltimore. She showed people “the real Baltimore,” outlining how decades of Democratic policies have imploded communities:

“Democrats don’t want you to see this. They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat-run cities. That’s why I’m running for Congress Because All Black Lives Matter Baltimore Matters And black people don’t have to vote Democrat.”

Two weeks later, in early September, Trump tweeted that he “fully endorsed” Klacik.

Now the Baltimore-based GOP Congressional candidate is out with another political ad bashing Baltimore liberals for destroying the city. She focused on Baltimore’s trash problems, dilapidated row houses, and the “black struggle of people in Baltimore.”

“I see a Baltimore that picks up trash,” Klacik said. “There are piles of garbage all around Baltimore. It makes life unsafe for our families. I’ll work with city leaders to get Baltimore Solid Waste Bureau the resources it needs to take out the trash.”
