Young Kim Raises $677,000 in the April-June Quarter
Fullerton, CA -- Candidate for California's 39th Congressional District, Young Kim raised $677,000 in the second quarter and is entering the fall campaign in a strong position. Kim surpassed her impressive first quarter fundraising mark and starts the fall campaign with $310,000 cash on hand.
"I am very encouraged by the support that we have seen from across the 39th Congressional District," said Young Kim. "The momentum that led to our victory in June is continuing because our message is resonating with the people of this District."
The 39th District is currently represented by U.S. Representative Ed Royce, who is retiring from Congress. The June Primary saw 17 candidates file in the 39th District, including seven Republicans. Kim was the top vote-getter with 21.2% of the vote. She will face Democrat Gil Cisneros, who survived a heated primary contest against six Democratic opponents.
An immigrant, small-business owner and key adviser to Representative Ed Royce, Young Kim was recently named a "Young Gun", the NRCC's highest candidate designation.
The 39th Congressional District is made up of parts of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties. For more information visit YoungKimforCongress.com.
