Republican Kimberly Klacik Seeking Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore Seat

Republican Kimberly Klacik Seeking Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore Seat

There’s an old political axiom that simply states “politics is perception.” Thus when it comes to the city of Baltimore the overwhelming “perception” is that of a city in constant chaos and confusion, due in part to incompetence, malfeasance, and corruption.

Moreover within part of that overall “perception” is the late Democrat icon and former civil rights advocate Rep. Elijah Cummings, who served within the House of Representatives from 1996 until his untimely death in 2019, representing Maryland’s 7th congressional district, including over half the city of Baltimore.

That’s just over 23-years representing a sizable chunk of perhaps one of the most dangerous, rat-infested cities in America, and surprisingly enough many Baltimore residents (some living in squalor), agree with Republican strategist Kimberly Klacik, who announced several weeks ago she’s running for the seat of the late chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, who passed away at 69-years of age in October.

The dichotomy between an imposing, influential, prominent and powerful Cummings presiding over a blight riddled third-world community for over two decades, is perplexing. Especially considering that within one weekend this past summer, an ordinary citizen witnessing the heartbreaking decay organized on his own, a 100 strong volunteer force to clean up the city, and within less then 9-hours picked up almost 6 tons of trash, most of it decades old.

Scott Presler made national news when he announced a “trash clean-up” in the city. The conservative gay Trump supporter was of course greeted with hostility from corrupt city Democrats along with some in the local media complaining of the unwanted attention, including the late Cummings, who was in the midst of an ongoing feud with the President.

Klacik, a savvy political strategist, after seeing how many Baltimore residents responded to both the President’s condemnation of Cummings lack of leadership in Baltimore along with volunteer groups doing the job that city workers should have done, realized that the moment may have come, when a young African American Republican female, may actually win.

In a recent interview, Klacik told hosts on “Fox & Friends First” “People got on Trump’s case for basically repeating what so many people in West Baltimore said. Not just the residents, but even the former mayor, Mayor Catherine Pugh said the same thing: rat-infested, there are problems there.”

Klacik said that the sentiments expressed from Baltimore locals give her hope that she, a Republican, would have a “shot” at winning in the traditionally Democrat-led city.

Cummings’ before his untimely death was locked in a verbal squabble with the President regarding the deplorable conditions.

At the time Klacik was also an outspoken critic of the policies taking place in Baltimore, and appeared on Fox’s Laura Ingraham show, to express her dismay at both Cummings along with the Democratic leadership within the city.

The Republican strategist and activist in Baltimore County was asked by the Fox host, why Democrats are, “doubling down on failure.”

“Honestly, it’s because they don’t know how to address it,” Klacik responded.

“This has been going on for decades. I know a lot of people want to blame the fact President Trump isn’t in Baltimore today to take a walk around to see what’s going on.”

In her interview with Ingraham, Klacik claimed she also had videos showing trees growing inside abandoned houses.

“A lot of the residents there, they feel like they were forgotten,” she said.

Klacik is, of course, a long-shot in capturing Cummings House seat, however, she’s emboldened by the President’s support.

On the flip side, at least two Democrats have thrown their hats in the ring, with perhaps Cummings’ widow, Maya Rockeymoore-Cummings, also making a bid for her late husband’s seat.

However, there may be some ethical issues involved, regarding her private consulting firm and her husband’s political connections, which are currently being investigated.
