BREAKING NEWS: Rep. Young Kim raises $1.2 million in Q2 and $6.4 million cycle-to-date

One of the House’s most prolific fundraisers, Kim ends the quarter with nearly $3.7 million cash-on-hand.

Yorba Linda, CA –  U.S. Representative Young Kim today announced raising $1.2 million in the FEC’s 2nd quarter putting her at $6.4 million cycle-to-date and ending the quarter with $3.7 million cash-on-hand. With another strong fundraising quarter, Kim has cemented herself as one of the House’s most prolific fundraisers and a clear favorite to win re-election in California’s 40th congressional district.

Despite being one of seventeen Republican members of Congress to represent a seat that Biden won in 2020, Rep. Kim has been consistently rated by Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball as a Likely Republican seat due to her fundraising prowess, her deep roots in the community, and a proven record of bipartisanship and getting things done for her constituents. 

Meanwhile, Kim’s Democrat opponent Joe Kerr, a multi-millionaire who has largely self-funded his race to date, has been left off the DCCC’s “Red-to-Blue” program and Axios even noted that “one notable omission is Joe Kerr, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Young Kim (R-Calif.) in a district Biden won narrowly in 2020”. Kerr was also left off of Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries’ Blue to the Future 2024 joint fundraising committee, which includes many of the top Democrat challengers in pick-up seats.

Congresswoman Young Kim has been named one of the most effective members of Congress and serves on the Foreign Affairs and Financial Services Committees. 

In the 2024 primary election, Kim defeated the Democrat field by 12.8% (56.4% to 43.6%). Kim was re-elected in 2022 by 13.6% in a seat that Biden won by 1.9%.
