They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat run cities.

Watch:

A Republican congressional candidate looking to fill a vacant seat left by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings criticized Democrats over squalid conditions in Baltimore in a recent political ad.

Kimberly Klacik posted a video Monday to her Twitter account featuring her walking through neighborhoods lined with blighted buildings while highlighting the city’s poverty and crime rate.

“Do you care about Black lives? The people that run Baltimore don’t,” she says in the beginning of the nearly three-minute video. “I can prove it. Walk with me.”

“Look at this,” she says as the video features rows of abandoned homes. “How are children supposed to live and play here.”

She noted that the Maryland city is one of the most dangerous in the country due to a surge in gun violence and alcohol deaths, she said. She also acknowledged the city’s climbing poverty rate and “crumbling infrastructure.”

“Baltimore’s been run by the Democratic Party for 53 years. What is the result of their decades of leadership?” Klacik asks.

She accused the Democratic Party of betraying Black people while criticizing the movement to defund police departments in the wake of a nationwide reckoning over law enforcement practices and racism. The video features several people stating their opposition to such efforts.

“I had three sons killed in Baltimore city and I think if we defund the police officers it’s going to be worse than that,” one man says. “So no, I’m opposed to that.”

“How do you defend your city, your community,” another person asks if police budgets are slashed.
