GOP lawmaker who made past racist remarks loses primary, CNN projects 1


Nine-term Congressman Steve King of Iowa will lose his Republican primary race to state Sen. Randy Feenstra, CNN projected, after King's racist comments led to his ostracization in Washington and Feenstra mobilized conservative Republicans to his insurgent campaign.

The primary fight was an undeniable referendum on King — not on his conservatism, but on his effectiveness in office. His lack of power, far more than his specific words and history of remarks on race, became a central issue in this year's race, with opponents arguing that he is unable to represent their views in the House or to the administration.

King, an anti-immigration hardliner, had a well-documented history of controversial statements during his nine terms in office. But only after a New York Times interview in January 2019, in which the congressman questioned how "white nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization" became offensive, did House Republican leaders rebuke him by stripping him of his committee assignments. Last June, the Trump administration barred him from Air Force One when the President visited his state.

    The Removal of all Trump Nazis
    Has just Started! 👏👏🙏

    • @CJoe 1111 Proof? How about the suit he lost for prejudicial (racial) profiling potential renters so he wouldn’t have to rent to blacks. Proven in court. He’s a bona fide racist, just like his daddy the kkk member.

      @Martin Streets you are getting roasted,get out of here man no good,no good.

    • @Mister Sinister Then you hate this country. I hope we never meet, mister comic book guy.

    • @Martin Streets Then you need to learn what a nazi is and what “antifa” means. We were anti-fascist during WWII, the whole nation. And we beat the nazis. Do we need to do it again?

    • @Martin Streets No democrat has called for the killing of Jews. Your delusions are not proof. Look it up. For real. Your right wing sites are lying to you. Find out what is real, for once.

      They say white privilege is real, but everytime I turn on the news there’s a black person saying racist things and it’s completely fine. When a white person says something racist they get fired, so who really is privileged? 😂🤔🤔

      @Christopher Pugh What’s false? Fox news agenda is to sew division and hate, they are the ones attacking the very politicians who pursue social justice. Fox news looks the other way or defend creeps like Steve King.

    • Or back under his burning cross.

    And Fat Orange Donnie says, “I didn’t know him.” What a complete bell-end

  10. One down, many more to go and most importantly, obviously the “Dotard” in the people’s house.

  11. King – the college drop out – can now to return to what he was most qualified to do. – SLOP THE HOGS on his farm.

      Yes sir👍! Boot all republicans. Disinfect all three branches of government. Vote blue all the way.

    • Not all Republicans are racist and not all Democrats are for minority people… But I get what you’re saying!! I feel that for things to change my generation on down who are in politics should start running for office… Rather they be Republican or Democrat. It’s our time to step up and take over.

    • @Daniel Ortega Why would anyone vote Blue when every single blue state is in debt and have the worst Covid 19 numbers and looting. Are you from China ? We dont want communism

    “Ilk… not elk” that was adorable and made me chuckle

  19. Isn’t Ted Cruz going to loose too? I want that.

    • Ted the flip flopper with orange stains around his mouth needs to go.

    • TEMPLETON wasn’t on the ballot this time. The best way to expose and get rid of him will be RASPUTIN McCONNELL being voted out. TEMPLETON will not have anyone to hide behind.

      Soon, their kinds will increase. Time for the GOP/Reps to clean up afraid they’ll lose the seats but it’s too late. Three years in sky high with their master.
