Young Kim is an immigrant from South Korea.
She is now the first ever Korean-American elected to Congress.
Why doesn’t anybody know about this?
Why isn’t the media going wild?
Because Kim is a Republican and not a Democrat.
It’s really that simple – and it’s a shame.
From Daily Wire:
While leftists are howling at the moon over the ascent of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman elected to Congress, the media has almost virtually ignored another historic victory from Tuesday night’s midterm: Young Kim of the CA-39, the first Korean American elected to Congress, who is also a Republican.
The CA-39 has been a Republican stronghold for well over 20 years now and Democrats were hoping to flip it blue with the retirement of Congressman Ed Royce. They picked the perfect candidate for it: MegaMillions jackpot winner Gil Cisneros, who turned to philanthropy after a lucky lotto ticket secured him $266 million. Despite a hardfought battle, Cisneros came up short on Tuesday night, losing to State Assembly Member Young Kim by just a little under 4,000 votes: 78,201 to 74,330.
Young Kim was born in Inchon, South Korea before spending most of her childhood Seoul. She first moved with her family to Guam and then attended University of Southern California where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in business administration. After graduating, she worked as a financial analyst for First Interstate Bank and then as a controller for JK Sportswear Manufacturing. Her political career began in 2014 when she successfully unseated Sharon Quirk-Silva.
Congrats to Kim. Winning an election as a Republican in California is no easy feat.
Women made a huge impact on the midterm elections.
For example, two Muslim women were elected to Congress on Tuesday night.
One from Minnesota, one from Michigan.
Both are Democrats.
Both apparently have “extreme anti-Israel views.”
After her win, Rashida Tlaib celebrated with the Palestinian flag.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib danced wearing the Palestinian flag at a victory party in Tuesday evening, after she won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in Michigan’s heavily Democratic 13th congressional district.
Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress on Tuesday, along with Ilhan Omar, who replaced outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress. Both Tlaib and Omar have extreme anti-Israel views. Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress.
This is History. Watch every second of this.
Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian and Muslim American congresswomen, proclaims victory.

In the video, Tlaib delivered a victory speech in which she acknowledged her family watching from abroad in the Palestinian Authority-administered West Bank. She dedicated her victory, in part, to the Palestinian cause: “A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian,” she said.
This is utterly absurd, unless Tlaib won a race in Palestine – if she’d be allowed to run for office.
Does an Cuban-American candidate celebrate a win with the Cuban flag?
Because this is America where we celebrate the American flag.
Changing demographics are why Democrats still win elections.
“Free stuff” still carries a lot of weight with a lot of people.
It’s just too bad Dems feel the need to lie to people to earn their votes.
It’s a shame.
