Kim won’t back Pelosi

Candidate wants new leadership on both sides

By Nikita Biryukov, June 23 2018 5:25 pm

Andy Kim joined a slew of other New Jersey House hopefuls on Saturday when he announced that he would support new leadership in Washington and, by extension, that he would not support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for a leadership role.

“When I worked in Afghanistan, no one asked me if I was a Democrat or Republican, we just focused on serving the American people,” Kim said. “As I’m now working to help my community here in New Jersey, it’s time we have new leadership on both sides of the aisle in Washington to get the job done.”

All of New Jersey’s non-incumbent Democratic House candidates, save former Assistant Secretary of State Tom Malinowski, have announced they would not reelect Pelosi if they win election.

On top of that, Rep. Bill Pascrell has announced he would not back Pelosi and is pushing to put New York Rep. Joe Crowley into a leadership role.
