PA candidate running to be first Black Republican woman in Senate slams Biden over past ‘ain’t Black’ comments

Kathy Barnette, a Black woman from Pennsylvania running as a Republican for U.S. Senate, criticized President Biden‘s previous comments on race in a Wednesday tweet.

Barnette, 49, is aiming to become the first Black Republican woman to ever serve on the U.S. Senate; only 11 Black Americans have served in the Senate in its entire 232-year history.

“I’m Kathy Barnette, and I’m running to become the first Black Republican [w]oman elected to the US Senate,” she tweeted along with a video announcing her candidacy. “I’ll be the voice we need to defend our rights.”
