(TargetLiberty.org) – Judging by the dismal viewership numbers, there’s not a whole lot of excitement about the Democrats right now. Even the party’s rockstar, Michelle Obama, didn’t draw much of an audience. But there was one star that took off during Mrs. Obama’s speech.
The week of August 17-20 brought us the Democratic National Convention (DNC). You would think that any new stars would arise from that event. But the breakout candidate wasn’t a Dem. She was congressional Republican candidate Kimberly Klacik.
Democrats don’t want you to see this.
They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat run cities.

On Tuesday, August 18, Klacik released a blistering ad going after the Democrats for their fakeness when it comes to Black lives. Within hours the ad went viral, scoring millions of views. It earned astounding social media engagement too, with millions more comments, likes and shares.
Klacik’s ad was such a hit that it eclipsed Michelle Obama’s DNC speech (at least digitally), which took place on the same night.
On Facebook, Michelle Obama, despite being promoted by the traditional media giants, couldn't scratch the virality of Klacik and the new media outlets who pushed her. pic.twitter.com/MLoQsggSVD

“Black People Don’t Have to Vote Democrat”
Kimberly Klacik is running for a congressional seat from Maryland’s 7th district. This is the seat that was formerly held by congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who died earlier this summer.
In her hard-hitting ad, Klacik said policies pushed by the Democrats had destroyed Black cities, including Baltimore. She explained the Dems don’t want you to see her message. The Republican strategist said she’s running for Congress because of the mess the Left has made in big cities across the country.
Klacik says she believes that Black lives matter, but she emphasized that ALL Black lives matter. She closed her ad by saying, “Black people don’t have to vote Democrat.”
In the general election in November, Klacik will face Rep. Kweisi Mfume (D-MD). There’s no doubt that Klacik is a rising star in the party, but she faces an uphill battle. A Republican has never held the seat she’s running to win.
