Young Kim Surpasses $800,000 Dollars Raised
ORANGE COUNTY, CA—Working right up until the June 30th reporting deadline, small businesswoman Young Kim announced today that she has surpassed $800,000 dollars raised in her campaign for the 65th Assembly District. With the final amount still being calculated Young Kim’s announcement makes her one of the most prolific fundraising candidates in the State.
Insiders and politicos monitoring the 65th District will be impressed with Young Kim’s performance in the June 3rd Primary Election, where she led her opponent by almost 10 percentage points. Kim’s fundraising numbers against an incumbent will further prove her credibility as one of the most impressive and dynamic candidates in the State.
“Young is well positioned to win back this seat in November,” said Republican political consultant Andre Levesque. “Her opponent went to Sacramento with an agenda that is out of line with the District and that is reflected in the number of endorsements, votes and donors that Young has received in her campaign. Momentum is with Young Kim to win the 65th District.”
The 65th Assembly district is expected to be a top target for both parties in 2014. It includes all or parts of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, La Palma, Fullerton and Stanton.
Young Kim is a small business owner and long-time advisor to U.S. Representative Ed Royce, who has represented all of the 65th District.
The district was represented by Republicans until 2012, when Quirk-Silva defeated Assemblyman Chris Norby.
