Congratulations New Congresswomen
The Republican Party of Montgomery County congratulates Representatives Young Kim and Michelle Steel on their historic election to the House of Representatives. Not only are they the first Korean American women elected to the House of Representatives, but they are part of a notable GOP resurgence in southern California. Their November wins marked the first time California Republicans had taken out an incumbent House member since 1994.
The pair also are part of the largest cohort of women Republicans have ever sent to Congress. And they are the first women to represent their respective geographic districts. “As a mother of four, I feel like I’ve naturally learned the negotiating skills to bring some win-win results,” said Kim, who beat Rep. Gil Cisneros in the three-county 39th District. “I love to tell my story and share how important it is to have a woman’s voice.”
