Another Korean-American Woman Elected to US Congress


On Tuesday, Republican candidate Michelle Steel, whose Korean name is Park Eun-joo, defeated Democratic incumbent Harley Rouda in California's 48th Congressional District.

According to The New York Times(NYT), Steel secured 50-point-nine percent of votes after a tight race where the margin was only one-point-eight percentage points.

Born in Seoul in 1955, Steel immigrated to the United States in 1975. She entered politics in 1992 after watching Korean-Americans' livelihoods get demolished amid the Los Angeles riots.
