The Queens Democrat is in a primary fight for state senate.

S.J. Jung, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Toby Ann Stavisky in the Sept. 13 primary, made the remarks in March to a group made up primarily of Korean churches.

At the same meeting, Jung, according to a report in Korean that was translated into English, spoke of other bills that have been difficult for the religious community and asked for prayers “so I can get elected to the New York State Senate to stop this from happening.”


“I pray Jesus Christ’s love to spread and his message speak through this election and your prayer of faith to make me become a warrior clad in armor,” he told the groups, according to the translation of his remarks.
