La Habra, CA – – Republican Congressional Candidate Young Kim reported raising an impressive $606,578 in the 1st quarter of 2018, exceeding expectations and firmly establishing herself as the top candidate in the crowded field running to succeed outgoing Congressman Ed Royce. The strong fundraising quarter leaves Kim with $466,761 cash on hand going into the final stretch of the primary campaign.
The vast majority of funds raised came from 460 individual donors, a clear demonstration of Kim’s ability to tap into a deep reservoir of supporters, many of whom are not traditional Republican donors.
“I am incredibly grateful for the generous and widespread support that our campaign has experienced.” said Kim. “However this is just the beginning. I am tirelessly working to ensure the 39th District has a representative that will be a strong voice for our communities and fight for results that will improve the lives of Southern Californians.”
Young Kim is running in California’s 39th District with the support of retiring Congressman Ed Royce. She is a small-business owner and former member of the California State Assembly, as well as a former Director of Community Operations for Royce.
The 39th District is made up of parts of Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. For more information on Young Kim for Congress visit youngkimforcongress.com.
