Republican Young Kim is poised to become the first Korean-American woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. 

The 56-year-old candidate for California's 39th Congressional District, is leading Democrat Gil Cisneros with a narrow two-point-six percent margin. 

More than 300-thousand provisional, late or mail-in ballots still remain to be counted across Orange County according to the Registrar’s Office, but it is unclear how many of those are for Young’s district. 

Another Korean-American, Democrat Andy Kim, appears to have been victorious in a tightly fought race against Republican incumbent Rep. Tom MacArthur in New Jersey's third district, however, the results remain uncalled.
