Congressional Candidate Young Kim Defies Stereotypes

Young Kim is a Republican congressional candidate in Orange County, California. Although the area used to be a Republican stronghold, Democrats flipped in the 2018 midterms. If her bid is successful, Kim will be the first Korean American Republican in Congress. Kim previously ran for this congressional seat and lost by a narrow margin. In an interview with the Washington Times, she said, “I think it’s important to redefine what GOP stands for. And I like to say this is a Grand Opportunity Party.” 

Conservative Women Will #NeverForget

In remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001, many notable conservative women took to social media to share their memories of that day and honor the fallen. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) shared a very personal account, describing her thoughts as she saw the towers fall in the senior lounge of her high school, on Instagram. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) shared a video on Twitter with a Capitol Police Officer after completing the 9/11 Tower Challenge. The challenge is to climb 2071 steps, the equivalent of each of the World Trade Towers’ 110 floors. These two were joined by many others, including Dr. Condoleezza Rice, to remember 9/11.
