Iowa Congressman Steve King says he might be interested in a new position next year — in Donald Trump’s administration.
OC….FOR AMERICANS :25
King cites the Homeland Security agency as a place that might lure him away from serving in the House.
Trump did a fundraiser for King’s 2014 reelection campaign, but King wound up endorsing Ted Cruz before the 2016 Iowa Caucuses.
Trump mentioned their complicated history this past Sunday during the Trump campaign rally in Sioux City.
OC….CAME AROUND :18
King just won an eighth term in congress.
The pollster King has used for a dozen years is Kellyanne Conway.
In August, Conway took over as Trump’s campaign manager.
King says Conway is “brilliant.”
OC….TO HIS VICTORY :19
King considers Conway a leading contender to be the press secretary for President-elect Trump because of her “utility” as a communicator.
King made his comments during taping of Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press” program that will air Friday night.
