Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America in support of J.D. Scholten’s (D. IA-04) congressional campaign:
Steve King is the most openly racist and horrific Republican in Congress.
He's used his position of power to support numerous hate groups and just this week he retweeted a message from a known white supremacist and Holocaust denier:
It's gotten so bad that the Neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer called King “basically a white nationalist at this point.”
To make matters even worse, Paul Ryan and the Republican Party refuse to take any action.
Far from it. They've made Steve King co-chair of the constitution and civil rights subcommittee and have sought his support for their presidential campaigns.
J.D. Scholten is a 5th generation Iowan who was born in the town of Nevada, grew up in Sioux City, and went on to play baseball professionally in seven countries around the world. He has already visited all 39 counties of the 4th District in his Winnebago RV “Sioux City Sue.”
J.D. will stand tall for Medicare for All and building a sustainable economy that works for everyone. If there's any progressive equipped to defeat a hate-fueled, right-winger like Steve King this cycle, it's him.
Thank you for rejecting bigotry.
