Received this e-mail from former Congressman, U.S. Senate candidate and Presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke (D. TX), in support of JD Scholten’s (D. IA-04) congressional campaign:
Steve King is Congress’ most out-in-the-open bigot. He’s well known for embracing the term “white supremacist.” This week, he told a packed club in Iowa that without “rape and incest… would there be any population left?”
Fortunately, King has a viable Democratic challenger running against him, Beto’s good friend JD Scholten. When Beto tweeted out some support for JD, Steve King fired back:
We can’t rid ourselves of bigotry and sexism without taking on the Steve Kings and Donald Trumps of the world. So today we’re doing a fundraising drive to raise as much money as we can for JD’s campaign to defeat Steve King, and Beto’s campaign to defeat Donald Trump.
JD Scholten can beat Steve King. Beto can beat Donald Trump. Our national politics doesn’t have to be this way.
It’s on us to make that change, and we can start by raising as much money as possible today. Make a $35 donation to JD Scholten and Beto right now.
Thanks for participating today,
