Happy to report that it didn't work out for him.
It wasn't close either. Feenstra, who reps a ruby red state senate district, beat him 46%-38%, and did so by pointing out that he was ineffective because of all the controversy.
Feenstra, who is just as conservative, anti-TBLGQ and Trump loving as King, had the backing of local and national Republicans who feared that if King were on the ballot, it would put this conservative leaning northwestern Iowa congressional seat in jeopardy of being flipped to the Democrats.
King's white supremacist views and palling around with international white supremacists have caused him to lose support in the state and national Republican Party. He was trying to skate by in this election cycle with only $30,000 in his campaign accounts.
In addition,, his racist views have cost him House committee assignments. He was stripped of them after saying in a New York Times interview, White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
Yeah, he's that clueless.
