Iowa Independent: King's opponent seeks to make hay out of oil reserve vote

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Kiron, was the only Iowa congressman and one
of 25 House members to vote against legislation that would direct the
Bush administration to halt the filling of the Strategic Petroleum
Reserve in an effort to help with consumer prices at the pump. "I will
not be distracted by gimmicks that are made to sound like solutions,"
King told the Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil through his office. "To
lower gas prices, I support more production of oil, natural gas and
renewable fuels." According to the Nonpareil, King criticized the "San
Francisco-style liberals" in Congress for opposing efforts to increase
energy production.
