In the battle for the House, Dems’ majority has been bolstered by recent change in the political environment and continued fundraising. A few races moved toward Republicans as a result of primary elections — including Rep. Steve King’s Northwest Iowa seat.
Twitter seems to have confused Rep. Steve King with author Stephen King. It is not alone:
JUST IN: Republican Rep. Steve King has lost his seat in Congress following the Iowa primary, ending a career long defined by his racism
NEW: Leaked Identity Evropa chats reveal that white nationalists have actively worked phones in support of Rep. Steve King, and donated to his reelection campaign, as part of ongoing efforts to keep a white supremacist in power
Rep. Rashida Tlaib cursing got 5 times more coverage on cable news than Rep. Steve King embracing white supremacy
Many Republicans are distancing themselves from the bigotry of Rep. Steve King. But this bile's been out there for years and echoed by many others. So, profiles in courage? Or politicians reacting to the majority of voters who find these views antithetical to the American ideal?
