Kong was a Republican candidate for District 33 in the Hawaii House of Representatives in the September 18, 2010 state legislative elections. The general election was November 2, 2010.
Kong's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "NO TAX INCREASES! ...Our taxes are high because of the burdens we have placed upon ourselves through the years of trying to be the good guy. Oh yes, many a legislator wants to do good for the people of Hawaii, I have no doubt, but in doing so, they take on certain responsibilities and costs that become counter productive. ...Government is NOT the answer, and people truly need not look to the government for answers . There is a need to look to family, friends, churches, private institutions, because there is help out there."
- Excerpt: "Transportation has so many problems with the city doing one thing, and the state doing another. I understand the many responsibilities from air, sea and land. However, when it comes to roads there are different entities with differing plans."
Kong ran in the 2012 election for Hawaii House of Representatives District 33. Kong ran unopposed in the August 11 Republican primary and was defeated by District 34 incumbent K. Mark Takai (D) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
