(ConservativePeak.com)- Kim Klacik, the young black woman running as a Republican in Maryland’s 7th district, delivered an epic speech during the first night of the Republican National Convention.
You might know Klacik from the viral video she produced. The campaign video featured her walking through the streets of Baltimore, showing people what the city really looks like. Klacik slammed Democrats for not caring about black lives, spoke to black residents who desperately wanted more police presence in the city, and told black voters that they don’t have to vote Democrat.
On the first night of the Republican National Convention, Klacik made her case to the American people.
“I’m the first Black female Republican candidate running for a Maryland Congressional seat, ever,” she said. “The Democrats have controlled my city, Charm City, for over 50 years and they have run this beautiful place into the ground. Abandoned buildings, liquor stores on every corner, drug addicts and guns on the street – that is now the norm in many neighborhoods,” she said.

Klacik said that given how high taxes in Maryland are, it’d be fair to expect that residents got a whole lot more – but they don’t. Instead, she said, their taxes are paying for decades of corruption and incompetence.
“Sadly, this same cycle of decay exists in many of America’s Democrat-run cities, and yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted,” she added.
Klacik is right, too. Democrats are currently holding up the next round of coronavirus relief in Congress by demanding that the federal government agree to spend three trillion dollars bailing out Democrat-run cities and states for their years of mishandling their finances. They have overspent and mismanaged for decades and now want to be forgiven for it. Klacik, however, is offering voters the chance to elect new, more responsible local leaders.
Klacik also slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for saying earlier this year that anybody who can’t decide between him and Donald Trump is not really black.
“Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves, that he color of someone’s skin dictates their political views,” she said. “We’re not buying the lies anymore. You and your party have ignored us for too long.”
