Kim Klacik is a rising Republican star who will lose her race for Congress. It doesn’t matter. I met her briefly at CPAC this final yr and he or she doesn’t strike me as an individual who harbors illusions, political or in any other case.
Thus she most likely knew from the gitgo that she would lose, however grow to be a star within the course of. She was proper. Type of like a GOP model of Beto, however with a mind and a future.
Klacik Outraises Her Opponent
Given star standing, she has been capable of far outraise her Democrat incumbent opponent, Kwesi Mfume.
“Baltimore congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik reported $6.four million in fundraising after President Trump shared her viral marketing campaign video, which lambasted Democratic management in cities with giant African American populations.
Since that advert, Klacik has appeared on the Republican Nationwide Conference and made a number of appearances on nationwide tv. A Federal Election Fee report filed Thursday evening confirmed her raking in $6,445,451 from July 1 by way of Sept. 30. The Baltimore Solar, which reported on the submitting, quoted Klacik as saying: ‘I believe we’ve been lucky with that viral marketing campaign advert that began the entire thing.’”
Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we’ll carry Baltimore again, and quick. Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your metropolis! https://t.co/PDdjgxbIHu

With that presidential endorsement of her profession, she’s going to both get a pleasant slot in a second Trump administration or be backed by Trump for an additional excessive GOP slot someplace within the post-Trump social gathering, which will likely be a celebration Trump will nonetheless have lots of say in.
Klacik Accused Of Shopping for The Election
In line with the Baltimore Solar, Mfume accused Trump and Klacik of attempting to purchase the election, saying, “This congressional seat belongs to the individuals of Baltimore Metropolis, Baltimore County and Howard County. Donald Trump and Kim Klacik can not purchase it. They need to take their cash and greed some other place, as a result of we’re not on the market. Not now, not ever.”
In fact she is attempting to purchase the election. So is he. So is anybody working for something in the USA at present. Politics, to mangle Clausewitz, is warfare by different means. Cash is ammo. For those who don’t have ammo you possibly can’t shoot and thus can’t win. Ergo…
FNC: “Klacik reported $2.9 million in expenditures, most of which was devoted to on-line adverts and mailers, in addition to $3.6 million in money available. Against this, Mfume’s money available was reported as $269,342.”
That could be a severe drawback for Mfume. However it’s irrelevant. His identify recognition and native voter loyalty, which given the financial situations within the district are insane, will assure a win. Although Klacik might pull off as much as 40 %, a severe ethical victory. In September 1939 the Polish Military achieved a severe ethical victory in opposition to the Wehrmacht. And…
Maryland, except for its Jap Shore, is deep purple due to Baltimore and the counties near DC. No quantity of star energy or cash will change that within the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, it received’t matter to Kim Klacik. She is going to go on to redder pastures.
