Gil Cisneros behind Young Kim in a new Monmouth Poll from September. In this race for the 39th Congressional district, Kim, a Republican, polled with 46% support, while Gil Cisneros, the Democratic candidate, had 42%. 12% declared undecided. Hillary Clinton won this district by 8%.
Ed Royce currently represents this district. He won this district by 14% in 2016. Despite that large margin of victory, he decided to retire. Young Kim is his hand-picked successor.
Ed Royce has voted with Trump 97.8% of the time.
In contrast, Gil Cisneros has progressive views. His positions include:
– healthcare for all
– a living wage for all Americans
– a believe in climate change and the need for action
– support for LGBTQ rights
– defending Planned Parenthood
– and much more
This seat is very important if the Democrats hope to take back the House.
