Congressman Andy Kim Corrects False Statements from Opponent Tammy Murphy

MOORESTOWN, N.J. - Today, First Lady Tammy Murphy stated inflammatory and flagrantly incorrect information regarding Congressman Kim’s record in a failed attempt to mislead voters.

On March 14th, 2024 Congressman Kim went on-record about his stance on the discharge petition vote. His statement is the following:

“When I worked at the White House a colleague told me, the last place that partisan politics belongs is in the Situation Room, in our national security. I support the discharge petition to vote on the senate passed bill and will sign it when the House reconvenes next week. I am tired of Speaker Johnson abusing his power to play politics with our national security by blocking the House from deciding.”

Congressman Kim has taken approximately 2,700 votes in Congress and has a 98% attendance record which is one of the highest attendance records in Congress. These votes have included delivering lower prescription drug costs for seniors, combating climate change, fighting corruption, and pursuing a progressive agenda for change.

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, 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.

As a son of immigrants, a graduate from New Jersey public schools, and a young dad, Andy represents a new generation of leadership in the Democratic Party and is committed to making sure all voices are heard when making decisions. He, and his wife Kammy, are raising two troublemaking boys down the road from where he grew up.
