BALTIMORE — Kimberly Klacik, the Republican nominee for Maryland's 7th Congressional District, is also questioning election results.

Klacik lost to incumbent Democrat Kweisi Mfume, but over the weekend tweeted: "I beat my opponent on day of and in-person early voting, along with absentee. However 97,000 mail-in ballots were found in his favor? Luckily, we raised enough money to investigate."

The tweet was flagged by Twitter saying "this claim about election fraud is disputed."

She originally conceded to Mfume on Twitter, but not before saying he is "someone that doesn't lift a finger" and told him to be prepared to be held accountable "like never before."

According to the State Board of Elections, Congressman Mfume received more votes than Klacik in early voting and also on Election Day.

As for mail-in ballots, Congressman Mfume beat Klacik by more than 102,000 votes.
