In his tweet, MacArthur denied having said that his Korean American midterm opponent “is not one of us” and pointed out that he adopted Korean children who deserved an apology from Schiff.
Hey @AdamSchiff – First, I didn’t say that. Second, you should have done some research before you made such a disgustingly false claim. I have 2 adopted children from South Korea. I don’t want your apology, but you sure can apologize to my children. pic.twitter.com/o5TDFq4a7o

Schiff’s criticism of MacArthur was part of a broader tweet earlier Thursday arguing that Republican candidates put away “the dog whistles of bigotry” and have started “using trumpets.”
Rep. MacArthur says his Korean American opponent is “not one of us.” Rep. Hunter attacks his challenger for being a Muslim terrorist. And Rep. King endorses an avowed white supremacist and anti-Semite.
The dog whistles of bigotry have been put away.
Now they’re using trumpets.

If Andy Kim (D) defeats MacArthur in the midterms, he would become the first Korean American to serve in Congress since 1999.
Cook Political Report, an independent election handicapper, rates the race as a ‘toss up.’
