Young Kim and Michelle Steel will join Marilyn Strickland as the first Korean American women elected to the US Congress. In that earlier post, we mentioned that Young Kim was in a tight race that had not yet been called. Republican Kim beat out Democratic incumbent Gil Cisneros in a close race for California’s 39th congressional district. We also missed Michelle Steel, another Republican who also beat out a Democratic incumbent for California’s 48th congressional district.
Congratulations to Representative Kim and Representative Steel!
