Republican voters ousted U.S. Rep. Steve King on Tuesday, delivering an end to the two decades of controversy he brought to his heavily conservative district.
The Associated Press has called the 4th Congressional District primary race for state Sen. Randy Feenstra of Hull, who had the backing of many state elected officials and national Republican groups. Feenstra won with 45.7% of the vote to King's 36%, a margin of just under 8,000 votes, according to unofficial results from the Iowa Secretary of State's office.
It's possible but that took waaaaay too long to get that shitbag out of office.
An interesting question to consider, though, is whether his longevity is mostly the fault of the voters or mostly the fault of the politically-rigged machinations put in place to ensure he kept his seat (e.g., gerrymandering, choking off funding for better candidates in favor of the incumbent, etc.)?
But the Parties pulls shit to keep their people in office as a matter of course. Doesn't always work. At the end of the day, elected officials who win race after race do it because the voters want them to win, even of they say stupid shit and do stupid things, even of they're corrupt. Look at Maxine Waters...
