The Iowa Republican: Salier suggests that King should face primary

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Bill Salier, continued his criticism of Congressman Steve King last week while on Steve Deace's program on WHO radio. Salier's most recent criticism stems from an op-ed the congressman penned in the Des Moines Register, which called for a constitutional amendment defining marriage. ... Salier went so far as to suggest that Congressman King is either uninformed about how to stand up to the court, or he is simply reading the political tea leaves and making a political calculation. Salier then said if it is the later, "then somebody should primary King." ... It appears as if Salier is upset with King for wanting to take a practical approach. Passing a marriage amendment to the Iowa Constitution is standing up to the court. While that process is long and tedious, that doesn't mean you forgo that route.
