Big Double Digit Win for Congressman Andy Kim in Sussex County, Sweeps First Four Conventions

STANHOPE N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim won his 4th convention in a row, this time in Sussex County. Sussex delegates showed up in force for Andy, resulting in him winning 57% of the vote over First Lady Tammy Murphy. Delegates voted secretly via paper ballots between all Democratic primary candidates declared for U.S. Senate.

This win, along with victories in Monmouth, Burlington, and Hunterdon Counties, shows the power of grassroots energy and the momentum it has created for Democrats to show up and vote their conscience. He will participate in Warren County’s convention next, which will take place tomorrow.

“Thank you to all the Sussex County delegates who attended today and took on the awesome responsibility of choosing who should represent them in such an important role like U.S. Senator, ” said Congressman Andy Kim. “This morning was another example of the energy we feel across the state when people get a real choice in their democracy. We need to have more open conventions with secret ballots where people are free to vote without pressure or intimidation. I can’t thank Sussex County enough for placing their trust in me as we look towards the June 4th Primary.”

First elected to Congress in 2018 at the age of 36, three-term Congressman Andy Kim is one of the younger members to serve in Congress and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. If elected to the Senate, Andy would be the 4th youngest Senator, the first senator from South Jersey in recent memory, and the first Asian American elected to the Senate from the entire east coast of America. 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.

In his three terms in Congress, Andy has worked hard to lower costs for New Jersey families and help support small businesses through challenging times. Andy has also been a leading champion in fighting against corruption in our broken politics.
