Iowa Congressman Steve King is again reassuring voters he will run for re-election in 2020, despite the controversies surrounding him from a New York Times interview where he made the comment “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization – how did that language become offensive?”

King was stripped of his House committee assignments shortly after that.

The 4th District Republican was interviewed by I-P-T-V’s “Iowa Press” program Thursday and was asked about the controversy by moderator David Yepsen:

OC………..has done continually.” :07

King says certain phrases have been “weaponized” by critics on Twitter, Facebook and other platforms.

He says that’s why Republicans lost House seats in 2018 — and he nearly lost his own race.

OC………..the New York Times.” ;16

King says he’d have no real influence on committees since Republicans lost the majority in the House.

King has served in congress since January of 2003 and will be seeking a 10th term in 2020.

He suggests a vote against him is a vote against President Trump’s agenda.

OC…………and support me.”:24

Several Republicans in the fourth congressional district have announced they intend to challenge King in the G-O-P primary election next year.

King’s appearance on Iowa Public Television will be broadcast Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
