Racist Remarks Forces Rep Steve King Out

By David Johnson/BNC Digital Reporter

U.S. Rep. Steve King lost his House seat to State Sen. Randy Feenstra this past Tuesday.

King lost the seat after holding it for over two decades losing to Feenstra 45.7% of the vote to King’s 36%, holding a under 8,000 vote advantage, according to unofficial results from the Iowa Secretary of State’s office.

King was stripped of his committees assignments in 2019 after his controversy remarks in support of white supremacists.

A number of candidates rushed to overthrow King in the 2020 primary, however Randy Feenstra would rise as the clear frontrunner in a state GOP leadership favor.

With veteran Rep. seat holder Steve King losing his seat, Is this the beginning of true progress to deny racism?

Only time will tell as the Feenstra era begins in Iowa, as the road to November heats up.
