Former congressional candidate and conservative commentator Kathy Barnette has jumped into Pennsylvania‘s 2022 U.S. Senate election, hoping to become the first black female Republican senator.

In a campaign announcement video posted to her Twitter on Tuesday, she can be seen walking in the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg and talking about what that place means to her. In the video, Barnette—who, according to her website, served for 10 years in the Armed Forces Reserves—also took swipes at President Joe Biden and “cancel culture”.

While noting in the video the progress that have been made for Black Americans in this country, Barnette said, “But there are still deeply personal and demeaning hurdles we must overcome, because now the issue isn’t just for someone who looks like me, but it is for people who think like me as well.”

“People like me are being canceled, bullied, fired, threatened, and deplatformed,” she continued, adding: “We’re told that Black lives matter—except, of course, my Black life because I’m a Black conservative.”

“And by the way, Joe, just because I believe in competent leadership doesn’t mean ‘I ain’t Black!’,” she wrote on Twitter, referencing the president’s infamous comment from the 2020 campaign trail that if Black voters don’t vote for him, then they “ain’t Black”.

Barnette was previously the GOP’s 2020 nominee for Pennsylvania’s fourth congressional district, but lost.

Currently, there is only one Black GOP senator: South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.

Notably, Scott recently defended his comments that “woke supremacy” is worse than white supremacy and said “I am proud to be both a Black man and a Republican” when discussing those who have attacked him for being both.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
