U.S. Rep. Steve King wins re-election despite furor over his views

U.S. Rep. Steve King wins re-election despite furor over his viewsU.S. Representative Steve King, an Iowa Republican, won re-election late Tuesday despite publicly losing a corporate supporter shortly before Election Day and being criticized by some within his own party for inflammatory remarks on immigration and race. Just days before the Nov. 6 elections, agricultural dairy cooperative Land O’Lakes pulled its support for King, saying it sought to “ensure that recipients of our contributions uphold our company’s values.” Though heavily criticized, King, 69, held off a challenge by Democrat J.D. Scholten, who raised more money than King had. King has been criticized by members of his own party for comments and support for candidates with white supremacist affiliations.
