Latino Victory Fund Interim President Melissa Mark-Viverito issued the following statement on failed candidate Young Kim’s announcement for California’s 39th Congressional District:

“Latino voters played a pivotal role in defeating Young Kim and they will play a big role in re-electing Representative Gil Cisneros this cycle. Gil Cisneros has been a staunch advocate for the people of California’s 39th Congressional District and a strong champion for the Latino community across the country. He’s fought to protect and expand affordable health care and has been a leader on veteran issues. Make no mistake: Orange County voters will once again reject Young Kim because they know she will be a rubber stamp for President Trump’s dangerous agenda against hardworking people.”
