Why you should support Andrew Kim


The people of the New Jersey Third Congressional District deserve a Representative that puts the interests of the constituents first.  My Representative Tom MacArthur has become Trump's biggest supporter in New Jersey and is the main author and lead negotiator for TrumpCare 2.0 that jeopardizes care for people with pre-existing conditions while blatantly protecting the health care plans of Congress from these changes.  We need new leadership in my home district, a place where President Obama won twice.  I grew up in the Third District.  It's where I hit my first home run, earned my first paycheck, and received an incredible public school education that opened up a world of opportunity.  I had the privilege of representing New Jersey as a Rhodes Scholar and Truman Scholar and then as a career public servant at the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and the Senate.  I advised President Obama on the war against ISIS, and I served as a strategic adviser to General David Petraeus in Afghanistan.  Through my commitment to public service, I came to believe that the mission of government is to improve the lives of people by providing opportunities and ensuring security.  Unfortunately, our government and our leaders have lost sight of this mission.  I have and always will put the nation and the American people above politics, and I want to fight alongside the citizens of New Jersey to demand a better government focused on improving the lives of the people.  I am running for Congress and I hope to have your support.


I'm running because I want to change how Congress works for the Third District.  Our government is broken. Our leaders ignore their responsibilities to the people.  Our country is led by billionaires and millionaires like Tom MacArthur who are out of touch with the struggles that Americans face to pay their bills and provide for their families.  MacArthur said he would be different from Trump, but he quickly became Trump's biggest supporter in New Jersey as he aligned with Trump 96 percent of the time, even on bills that he knew would hurt the people of the New Jersey Third District.  He was the only Member of Congress from New Jersey to support TrumpCare even though he knew over 33,000 people from our District would lose their insurance.  When the constituents voiced their opposition to these measures, Tom MacArthur had the audacity to call them "paid protesters."  By these actions Tom MacArthur had dishonored the people he took an oath to serve. 

I will make a contract with the people of NJ03 to be the most accessible and transparent Member of Congress.  I will commit to providing daily reports and to holding at least one in-person town hall every single month.  I will solicit constituent views before every vote and explain my positions.  I will fight against corruption and the negative influence of money in Washington that goes against the interests of the people.  We can only change Congress by changing the types of people we elect.  I am a public servant not a politician, and I pledge to always put the people of New Jersey first.


I am proud to have served my country from the war zone of Afghanistan to the White House.  I served in Afghanistan as an adviser to Commanding General Petraeus where I worked alongside our brave service men and women and learned what it meant to put our lives on the line to keep our nation safe.  I had the honor to serve at the White House as the Director for Iraq at the National Security Council helping to coordinate the war against ISIS.  I helped design our nation’s strategy for war to stop ISIS from committing genocide against tens of thousands of innocent people.  I worked at the Pentagon to strengthen our military and became a diplomat at the State Department to secure critical international alliances.  These experiences tested me and strengthened me as a patriot, a leader, and a public servant. I saw firsthand what it meant for our nation to be at war, and I am running for office to build on my deep national security experience as a public servant to bolster our security and to support the work of our military, the men and women at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, our veterans, our military families and the strong communities in New Jersey that support them. 


We all know what is at stake in 2018.  I am running for Congress because I want to fight on behalf of those Americans who are frightened about their futures.  My parents were both immigrants who moved to America to build a better life.  That is why they raised me in the New Jersey Third District.  My family never had much money in the bank, but we worked hard to maximize our opportunities.  I am now a father of a baby boy with another little guy on the way, and I want to make sure my family and all families in New Jersey have opportunities and security to build a better life.  We can only strengthen our economy and provide security to our citizens if we put the people first. That is the job of Congress, and I want to talk with you about how to build a better tomorrow.

Health Care Shouldn't Be About Politics

Two nights ago, my wife and I welcomed our beautiful baby boy into the world. 

And the very next morning, Senate Republicans unveiled their latest attempt to make health care more expensive and less accessible to New Jersey families.

I recorded a few thoughts from the hospital room and wanted to share them with you.

    “I endorse Andy Kim for several reasons. I am a registered Democrat and I do not believe that our district has been well served by Tom MacArthur. Tom MacArthur is an uncaring hypocrite who has promised to solve the opioid crisis while denying those who need treatment, the coverage to obtain that treatment. He does not represent the values of this district. I have little information on Mr. Kim, however, I look forward to learning about his policies and his vision for our district.”
