WATCH: Black Republican announces run for Senate in PA, garners support from Tomi Lahren, Vernon Jones, Gorka

Tuesday, Black Republican Kathy Barnette announced her run for U.S. Senate in the state of Pennsylvania.

Barnette tweeted “I’m Kathy Barnette and I’m running to become the first Black Republican Woman elected to the US Senate. I’ll be the voice we need to defend our rights. ”

“And by the way, Joe, just because I believe in competent leadership doesn’t mean “I ain’t Black!,” she added.

In her video, Barnett says “we’re told that black lives matter, except of course my black life, because I’m a black conservative. Radicals want to control and strip not just black conservatives, but all conservatives, of our identity because we dare to think for ourselves.”

“The white man that sits at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue believes he has the power to take away my blackness because I’m a conservative, but I will keep on,” she continues.

Barnett was quick to receive endorsements from several conservatives.

Tomi Lahren tweeted “You have my support!”

Vernon Jones tweeted “This is what I’m talking about. All Black Lives Matter, even when you are a conservative Black woman running for office. Join
@BurgessOwens, me and others in supporting @Kathy4Truth for PA US Senate! @GOP Watch her video!”

Sebastian Gorka tweeted “I support Kathy. So should you.”
