Steve King

Iowa's 4th District (IA - 04)

Updated: Aug 19, 2014

Narrative

Steve King does what’s best for himself and for his campaign donors. Instead of focusing on helping Iowa families, King is busy voting himself pay raises and supporting the special perks he gets as a member of Congress.

This race is not about the offensive and divisive statements King is known for making. It’s about how he puts himself and his donors ahead of middle class Iowa families.
