Andy Kim

U.S. Representative

Congressman Andy Kim was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018 as the first AAPI member of Congress from New Jersey and the first Democratic Korean American ever elected to Congress.


In 2020, Congressman Kim won reelection in a district won twice by Donald Trump, becoming the first Democrat since before the Civil War to secure a second term.


Congressman Kim grew up in South Jersey, the proud son of Korean immigrants, where he attended public K-12 schools before becoming a Rhodes Scholar.


Prior to serving in the House, Congressman Kim worked as a career public servant under both Democrats and Republicans. He served at USAID, the Pentagon, the State Department, the White House National Security Council, and in Afghanistan as an advisor to Generals Petraeus and Allen.


He currently lives in Burlington County with his wife and two baby boys.
