Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says she’ll keep fellow Republican Steve King involved in her gubernatorial campaign even though she condemns his recent online comment that criticized diversity.
OC………what he said. :08
Reynolds says the 4th District Congressman is one of multiple people serving as a state co-chair on her campaign, and she won’t always agree with everything they say.
OC……issues for Iowans. ;25
King tweeted on Friday “diversity is not our strength” along with an article about the Hungarian prime minister’s anti-immigration views.
Iowa Democrats have called on Reynolds to drop King as a state co-chair.
Reynolds, who is seeking a four-year term next year, says she disagrees with King’s comment and won’t get “sidetracked” by it.
