Charlotte mayoral candidate Kimberley Paige Barnette tells voters to cast their ballots for her because she’s white. Um, Trump’s America.

Barnette wrote on Facebook: “VOTE FOR ME!” “REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL.”

The Charlotte Observer reports, Barnette, 53, is a former Mecklenburg County magistrate making her first run for office.

More from the Observer on Barnette:

In a WTVI debate last month, Barnette criticized last September’s Charlotte protesters. She called the protests “an expression of Democratic behavior.”

Asked how the city could help its lower-income residents, Barnette said, “I don’t think we should encourage more lower-income people to (come to) Charlotte.”

“We should attract higher-income people.”
