Saturday, Nov. 13, Democratic congressional candidate David Kim spoke at the Commonwealth Auditorium in the Sadler Center.
As one of the few Korean American students in his community growing up, Kim said he made a point by running for student government positions.
Despite Kim’s Korean American background, he did not receive an endorsement from the first Korean American Democrat elected to Congress, Rep. Andy Kim of New Jersey.
After Andy Kim endorsed Gomez, David Kim cited bullying and incumbency advantages as factors in the endorsement.
Anshu Sharma Ph.D ’26 said he also appreciated David Kim’s willingness to come and speak, particularly on the basis of economic issues and challenges facing outsider candidates.
