Kim Klacik is a rising Republican star who will lose her race for Congress. It does not matter. I met her briefly at CPAC last year and she doesn't seem like a person with political or other illusions.
So she probably knew from the Gitgo that she would lose, but would become a star in the process. She was right. Kind of like a GOP version of Beto, but with a brain and a future.
Klacik outwits her opponent
Given her star status, she was able to leave her reigning Democratic opponent, Kwesi Mfume, far behind.
Baltimore Congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik reported $ 6.4 million in donations after President Trump shared her viral campaign video condemning democratic leadership in cities with large African American populations.
Since that ad, Klacik has appeared at the Republican National Convention and has made several appearances on national television. A Federal Election Commission report filed Thursday evening showed it grossed $ 6,445,451 from July 1 to September 30. The Baltimore Sun reporting the filing quoted Klacik as saying, “I think we got lucky with this viral campaign and this ad started the whole thing. & # 39; ”

With this confirmation of her career as president, she will either get a nice place in a second Trump administration or be supported by Trump for another place with a high GOP somewhere in the post-Trump party, of which Trump will still have a lot.
Klacik accused of buying the election
According to the Baltimore Sun, Mfume accused Trump and Klacik of trying to buy the election, saying, “This congressional seat belongs to the people of Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Howard Counties. Donald Trump and Kim Klacik can't buy it. They should take their money and greed elsewhere because we're not for sale. Not now, never. "
Of course she tries to buy the choice. That's how he is. That's how someone in the United States is running for something today. Politics to tear Clausewitz apart is war in a different way. Money is ammunition. If you run out of ammunition, you cannot shoot and therefore you cannot win. Ergo …
FNC: “Klacik reported spending of $ 2.9 million, the majority of which was for online ads and mailers, and $ 3.6 million in cash. In contrast, Mfume's cash on hand was reported at $ 269,342. "
This is a serious disadvantage for Mfume. But it's irrelevant. His notoriety and local electoral loyalty, insane given the economic conditions in the district, will guarantee victory. Though Klacik could get up to 40 percent, a serious moral victory. In September 1939, the Polish army won a difficult moral victory against the Wehrmacht. And…
Maryland, other than its east coast, is deep red because of Baltimore and the counties near DC. No amount of star power or money is going to change this anytime soon. However, it doesn't matter to Kim Klacik. She will go to redder pastures.
