Washington, D.C. — Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee (PAC) dedicated to electing fiscally conservative women to federal office and statewide executive office, is proud to announce the endorsement of Young Kim for California’s 39th Congressional district.

As an immigrant to the United States, Young Kim’s unique perspective on the AmericanDream has led her to devote her life to public service and giving back to her community. A working mother of four, Young started her career as a small business owner and financial analyst. Young Kim began public service in former U.S. Representative Ed Royce’s office over 25 years ago, eventually becoming his Director of Community Operations.

“I’m truly honored by the early and strong support from the conservative women leaders at Maggie’s List,” said YoungKim, a former California State Assemblywoman. “Maggie’s List and I agree that our nation is at a crossroads and we need proven leaders who will promote fiscal conservatism, less government and a strong national security, and that’s whyI’m honored to have their endorsement again in our rematch to take backCalifornia’s 39th district,” continues Kim.

Young Kim narrowly lost her 2018 congressional bid in one of the tightest, most watched races in the country and is now seeking a rematch with Democrat Gil Cisneros. Kim’s candidacy gives House Republicans the best opportunity to win back a California House seat. As a leader in the Asian- American community, Young has the ability to attract cross-over votes from this key and fast-growing voter base.

“We know that Young Kim will be a force in Washington,” states Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman ofMaggie’s List and former elected Florida Secretary of State. “Her experience, commitment to service, conservative values and ability to inspire other women leaders make her an excellent candidate and future representative! She will make sure CA-39 citizens are heard!”

“I am so proud to support Young Kim, I have worked with her in the State Assembly and on local issues. She is one of the most hardworking candidates I have ever met. When she wins, she will go to Washington as one of the first Korean conservative women in Congress. She will bring her free market principles and business savvy with her, she will make Californians proud,”states Maggie’s List California Chair, Teresa Hernandez.
