Steve H. Kim: He May Be A Republican, But He's Still A First

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

I've long since let the dream die that all Asian Americans will be Democrats (and yes, I do know how absurd that sounds in its own way) so when it comes down to it - I can still root for someone being the first, even if I may not agree with their ideology:

Former Northfield trustee and Illinois attorney Steve H. Kim today announced his candidacy for Illinois Attorney General. Kim, a Korean American from Northbrook, is the first Asian American in the Republican Party to run for statewide office in Illinois.

A legal advisor to small and medium sized domestic and international companies, Kim outlined his goals for the campaign and the Office of Illinois Attorney General, promising to bring a fresh voice and independent perspective to the office.
Go Steve Kim?
