Steve King, a US parliamentary member from Iowa, has lost the support of the National Republican Congress Committee other GOP legislators and several local corporate donors including Purina and Country O & # 39; Lakes . The king lost former Intel’s support.
A new survey with a finds King with a 1-point leader over his democratic opponent, JD Scholten.
King recently renewed a deserved white nationalist, Faith Goldy, who ran for mayor in Toronto and gained 3.4% of the vote. On October 25, Washington Post reported that the king had met a right-hand Austrian right party with Nazi roots and interviewed his website after a trip to Auschwitz funded by a memorial group of the Holocaust.
The NRCC spends in congresses, especially in close elections, and it confirmed its withdrawal from the king’s funding during the last days of the king’s struggle to maintain his seat. Scholten first seemed a long shot, considering the king’s final 2016 election with a 23% lead over his democratic opponent in a county that Trump took 27%.
However, Scholten hit dramatically King in direct contribution, with $ 1.7 million to $ 740,000. Most of the king’s expenses have been for family rooms and collection costs without television advertising.
Scholten also received a remarkable independent expense: A $ 300,000 ad campaign from a PAC run by former president candidate Evan McMullin, a leading “Never Trump” critic. The ad is marked with King “Klan & Neo-Nazi approved.” GOP Householder Carlos Curbelo in Florida said at the MSNBC on October 31 that he would not vote for King, even though it meant losing GOP control over the House.  The king has long tended against coded expressions for support for white nationalism and superiority, but intensified open statements in this election cycle. This meant tying George Soros into a supposed conspiracy that is popular among the right-handers, claiming that left-handers finance immigration to “replace” white populations.
In a statement, the King expressed confirmation for all “legal immigrants” and “native citizens” regardless of race, ethnicity or natural origin, saying: “These attacks are orchestrated by nasty, desperate and dishonest false news.” King did not mention religion .
