Ronald Kim enters 21st Congressional District race

Ronald Kim, a lawyer who lives on Glen Lake in Queensbury, announced he is seeking the 2018 Democratic nomination in the 21st Congressional District, becoming the sixth Democrat to enter the race.

“Watching what’s going on in the country, it’s hard to just sit on the sidelines,” said Kim, in a telephone interview on Tuesday, after announcing his candidacy in a news release on Monday.

Kim said he hopes to participate in a forum at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury on Thursday with the other five announced Democratic candidates and Republican candidate Russell Finley.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, was invited, but cannot attend because of a scheduling conflict, organizers said.
