This just came over the transom from the Young Kim for Assembly campaign:
Young Kim Bursts “Out of the Gate” – $427,000 Raised in Less Than Six Months
(Fullerton, CA) Republican Young Kim announced that her campaign will show $382,000 raised on the year end campaign finance report. With the addition of the $45,000 raised at her fundraiser in Buena Park last week, her campaign has now raised $427,000 in less than six months.
Since her official announcement in October, Young Kim, has rocketed to a staggering fundraising number. All of her donations have been received since the mid-year campaign finance reports.
“I am absolutely honored with the response I have received from the community,” said Young Kim. “Our campaign has been off to a blistering start since I announced my candidacy. We have support coming from hundreds of individuals and small businesses who are frustrated with what is going on in Sacramento. They want change and they trust me to be their voice in the Assembly. I won’t let them down.”
On the news, Young Kim campaign consultant, Dave Gilliard commented on the fundraising report. “This is good news for Republicans. It’s been a long time since the party has seen a candidate raise almost $400,000 in a few months against an incumbent, and to have the kind of crossover appeal that Young Kim has shown. In 2014 Republicans are going to be on the offensive and it starts in the 65th Assembly District.”
The 65th Assembly district is expected to be the top target for both parties in 2014. It includes all or parts of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, La Palma, Fullerton and Stanton. It is currently represented by Democrat Sharon Quirk-Silva, who defeated former Republican Assemblyman Chris Norby in 2012.

I wish GOP Assembly candidate recruitment was this good everywhere in the state.
