Politically Speaking: King's confab
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King will be in Northwest Iowa in
two days, kicking off eight stops over a week. The first public
meetings in which he'll hear citizen input on current issues are in
Sioux Center and Sioux City on Aug. 15. Republican King is running for
a fourth term vs. Democrat Rob Hubler. To date, there will be no
debate, at least in Sioux City. Thus far King has declined Hubler's
invitation to debate multiple times throughout the Fifth District.
King, of course, has said he wouldn't participate in an October Sioux
City debate hosted by the Journal and the League of Women Voters. His
reason in 2006 for not debating Democrat Joyce Schulte was that she
wasn't a bona fide candidate.
