Steve King needs to go
Steve King has made more outrageous comments than we can count, about everything from building electric fences on the Mexican border as his idea of immigration reform to “the unemployed are like lazy children.” King has shown over and over that he cares more about championing right-wing causes for the Tea Party, Koch Brothers and other idiots and corporatists than he does about representing Iowans in Congress.
One issue that King is on the wrong side of that crosses party lines is that of animal cruelty. Steve King has failed to support legislation that would prevent cruelty to animals in the form of dog fighting and has opposed the ability of whistleblowers to report inhumane conditions in factory farms.

Steve King is vulnerable:
Public Policy Polling conducted a survey of Iowa’s 4th District in October 2013. Respondents disapproved of Steve King’s job by a margin of 7 percentage points, 47% disapprove to -40% approve. Significantly, the automated poll contacted more Republicans than Democrats. 28% of those polled responded that they were Democrats; 34% Republican; 38% Independent. Even more remarkable, respondents said If the election for Congress were held today (October 2013), by a margin of 49% to 45% they would vote to elect King’s Democratic opponent.
These results indicate a real opportunity to send a Democrat to congress from Iowa’s 4th.
