Dr. Asif Mahmood Raises $1 Million In His First Month As A Candidate for Congress

Feb 22, 2022

TUSTIN — Dr. Asif Mahmood, who launched his campaign to unseat Congresswoman Young Kim in CA-40 on January 20, announced he has raised an eye popping $1 million during his first month in the race.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support our campaign has received,” said Dr. Mahmood. “Families in the 40th district want leaders in Washington who will actually work to solve problems and make life better here in Orange County. They aren’t getting that kind of leadership from Representative Kim.”
