Kimberly Klacik is a Republican Congressional candidate from Maryland’s 7th district. That would be the heart of Baltimore.

We could tell you all about Klacik’s political qualifications, activism work, and upbringing.

Or we could just show you her latest campaign ad, a stunning kill-shot straight into the heart of Democrat talking points. In the ad, a sharp-looking Klacik takes viewers on a walk through Baltimore. She asks us to put aside the typical talking points and look directly at the visible evidence of decades of exclusive Democrat control. Klacik walks past boarded-up buildings and abandoned property, trash-filled streets and barren neighborhoods. She points out the reality of life in Baltimore, a reality that corporate media ignores daily in favor of a narrative that makes Trump and all Republicans squarely to blame for inner city failures even though Republicans haven’t been welcome there for decades.

As you watch this video, keep in mind that this is the district the late Elijah Cummings represented for well over two decades. Klacik forces viewers to take a look at the conditions and ask themselves if electing the same type of representative would represent any forward movement in Baltimore in any way? At what point do we look around and say that the people saying we need to elect them to fix this mess never keep their promises? We rightly hailed Cummings as a civil rights figure, but his track record later in his career was an absolute failure for the black community he represented. Klacik lays it all out in real time.

And it is devastating.

And so are those heels!

If you like this, head over to Kimforcongress.com and show some love. As a Republican, Klacik has an uphill battle but with ads like this, she’s definitely still in the fight.
