(ReliableNews.org) – Rep. Ron Wright (R-TX) died on February 7, 2021, shortly after taking the oath of office to serve his second term representing Texas’s 6th congressional district. More than 20 candidates joined the race to replace him at a May 1, 2021, special election.
Sery Kim, President Trump’s former assistant administrator for the Office of Women’s Business Ownership, announced her candidacy for Wright’s seat in a March 8 tweet.
Her announcement included a brief campaign ad highlighting her family’s journey to the United States from Seoul, South Korea when she was just a child. Her parents worked multiple jobs to “put food on the table,” she explained. Texas is where she learned the importance of “hard work,” “sacrifice,” and “resilience.”
Kim joins another former Trump administration staffer, Brian Harrison, who served as the Department of Health and Human Services chief of staff. He is native Texan and announced his campaign last week.
Kim vowed to “take the fight” against big government interests to Washington DC if elected. Her question is, “are they ready for me?”
