Republican congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik, 38, raked in over $6 million in the third quarter of 2020, outraising Democratic incumbent Congressman Kweisi Mfume (D-MD) by nearly 35 times in the final, full fundraising cycle before the general election.
According to The Washington Post, Klacik raised $6.4 million between July and September of 2020, and currently has $3.6 million on hand. Mfume, who took over Maryland’s 7th district after the death of Congressman Elijah Cummings in 2019, raised $184,344 in the same time period as his Republican challenger.
Since launching an insanely viral campaign ad back in August, Klacik has received attention across the country, including from President Donald Trump, who shared the original ad on Twitter and said, if elected, Klacik would engage with the administration.
Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast. Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city! https://t.co/PDdjgxbIHu
