Kim Wins

No surprises here. U.S. Rep. Andy Kim notched a Democratic Primary win tonight in his bid for the U.S. Senate seat.

Kim defeated rivals Dr. Patricia Campos-Medina and Larry Hamm for his party’s nomination.

From the Kim Campaign:

“Our win today is a stunning victory for a people-powered movement that mobilized against corruption and stood up to the machine politics of New Jersey. I took the chance to run for Senate eight months ago on the belief that people are fed up with our broken politics and are ready for a new generation of leadership fighting for change. What I found is that there is a deep hunger ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM for a different kind of politics grounded in integrity and public service that aims to rebuild trust. 

Our work is just beginning. New Jersey has a choice: the chaos and corruption of Bob Menendez and Donald Trump, or a politics that works for families struggling to get by. New Jersey deserves better, and I’m ready to take our movement for change to the U.S. Senate.”

Congressman Andy Kim is a three-term Member of Congress first elected in 2018 and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, and in 2022 Kim defeated his third self-funding millionaire opponent by 12 points. 

In his three terms in Congress, Andy has worked hard to lower costs for New Jersey families and help support small businesses through challenging times. Andy has also been a leading champion in fighting against corruption in our broken politics.

  1. Incredibly, the candidate with all the money is successful in the election over two rivals that are more representative of the Democratic Party electorate!
