Andy Kim is the Democratic nominee to take on GOP Rep. Tom MacArthur in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District. An experienced national security expert and practitioner, Kim served as the Iraq Director on the National Security Council under President Obama. He worked on the ground in Kabul as a strategic advisor to Generals David Petraeus and John Allen, and he has served in various roles at the Pentagon, State Department, USAID, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Kim has dedicated his professional career to national security policy and using the tools of diplomacy to end conflict. He is committed to maintaining Israel’s qualitative military edge, and if elected to Congress, Kim will advocate for bilateral military aid to maintain Israel’s military superiority in the region. He also understands that defending Israel’s national security includes continuing US aid to civilians on the ground. In Congress, Kim looks forward to being a tireless and enthusiastic advocate for the two-state solution.
