Republican Young Kim Leads Dem Incumbent by 4,058 Votes in CA House Race

Republican woman Young Kim, a Korean immigrant, appears well on her way to flipping another blue seat red, leading Democrat Incumbent Gil Cisneros by 4,058 votes in a tight House Race in California District 39.

While new organizations have yet to call the race, Dave Wasserman of the “Cook Political Report” tweeted “Look guys, I’ve seen enough. Young Kim (R) is well on her way to defeating freshman Rep. Gil Cisneros (D) in #CA39. In an upset, Dems lose an Orange County district Clinton carried 51%-43% in 2016.”

In addition Wasserman added “Kim (R) just turned in an unreal performance in the Los Angeles Co. portion of #CA39 (Rowland Heights, Diamond Bar, Walnut), zooming ahead of both Trump’s ’16 share and her own ’18 share. ”
