California Republican Ranked Among Most Bipartisan in Congress

Orange County Republican Young Kim has been ranked as one of the most bipartisan members in Congress. 

California Rep. Young Kim (R) has been ranked as among one of the most bipartisan members of Congress, according to the Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University

The Orange County Republican was ranked as the 16th most bipartisan member of Congress and is also among the top 10 most bipartisan House Republicans. She is also the most bipartisan member of the California delegation. 

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Kim said she will never “waver” from her principles, but she also believes “finding common ground is important to move our country forward.”

Kim touted her accomplishments since joining Congress. According to her congressional website, it was noted that she had helped return over $23 million to taxpayers from federal agencies, passed over 30 bills and has even passed 15 bipartisan bills into law, and she also recognized “Vietnam era veterans and spouses for their services.”

During the last Congress, she was considered the most bipartisan among the new members, according to Bipartisan Index Score, as well as in data released in 2021 by Axios and Quorum Analytics. 

“I came to Congress to bring common sense, break through the partisan gridlock, and deliver results for my constituents and the American people. My record shows my commitment to getting things done,” she said.

Heritage Action for America has given Kim a lifetime conservative score of 70%, which is 4% below the average for members of the House. She also has a current score of 54% for the 118th Congressional Session. 

While she has voted to secure the border, blocked President Joe Biden’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) rule for retirement accounts, and even impeached Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, she has also voted for an appropriations “six-bill minibus” and more Ukraine foreign aid. 

Kim has also been concerned about rising inflation and crime, especially in California. 

On May 20, she shared that 7 convenience stores in Southern California had been robbed, which included Orange County. “Hardworking Californians are paying more for less thanks to persistent inflation & reckless spending from Sacramento & Washington,” she said in March

She is also vocal about her criticism of Biden’s policies, especially when it comes to immigration and border security.
