Young Kim Named “Young Gun” By NRCC

La Habra, CA — Today, Young Kim announced earning the NRCC’s highest candidate status of “Young Gun”. The status is a clear recognition of the strength of her candidacy as Kim was one of only 11 candidates nationally to reach the top tier of the Young Gun program.

“Our Young Guns are the cream of the crop,” said NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers. “This first round of extraordinary candidates includes men and women from diverse backgrounds across the country. I can’t wait for them to join me in Congress to fight to keep our economic comeback on track.”

The NRCC Young Guns program is structured to identify strong candidates and bolster their development to help them achieve certain benchmarks proving their campaigns are in a winning position going into November.

An immigrant, small-business owner and key advisor to Representative Ed Royce, Young Kim finished first in the June Primary and is considered a strong candidate to win in November.

Young Kim’s recognition is noteworthy considering her late entry into the election for the 39th¬†District due to the January 2018 retirement of Representative Ed Royce.
