  • “Burlington County is home to me in every sense of the word,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “It is where I grew up, where my wife and I chose to raise our children, currently living just a few minutes from my childhood home, and is a county that I have been so fortunate to represent since I first joined Congress in 2019. I am truly humbled by the outpouring of support I have received from Burlington, as these leaders and organizations have been working side-by-side with me since day one in Congress and are examples of what true partnership can look like when we come together to work on behalf of the people, not the powerful few. I have a lifetime of memories from Burlington County and I am so thankful to them for having my back as we look towards the convention and June 4th.”

    “I am very proud that Andy represents us in Congress, and he has always shown up consistently for Mount Holly and our district as a whole,” said Mount Holly Municipal Chair Casey Carty. “On a personal level, as a mother with a son who has special needs, it is very important to me that we have representatives who can speak for those without a voice and Andy has so graciously carried that torch in Congress and so, on a larger federal level, I know he will be able to be the voice my son and so many others need.”

    "As a Burlington County Commissioner I've had a front-row seat to see what a great public servant Congressman Kim is,” said Burlington County Board of Commissioners Deputy Director Daniel J. O’Connell. “From holding town hall meetings across the entire district to addressing issues and matters of concern to our residents, he has been a model of public service. I am proud to support him in his race for U.S. Senate and will be glad to help him in any way to see that happen."

    “Andy Kim has been a stalwart partner for our community, and his commitment to public service has extended well past his voting record - it has been exemplified in his work on behalf of our residents and businesses since he took office in 2019," said Evesham Mayor Jaclyn Veasy.

    “I support Congressman Kim’s agenda and the work he has done with veterans and seniors. I look forward to future service in our community,” said Edgewater Park Mayor Kevin Johnson. “Congressman Kim is an honest man with integrity that I am proud to support.”

    Congressman Andy Kim is a three-term Member of Congress first elected in 2018 to represent his hometown district, and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, and in 2022 Kim defeated his third self-funding millionaire opponent by 12 points. If elected to the Senate, he would be the first Senator from South Jersey in recent memory.

    In Congress, Andy has worked hard to lower costs for New Jersey families and help support small businesses through challenging times, including helping with the rebuilding process after Super Storm Sandy. Andy has also been a leading champion in fighting against corruption in our broken politics.
