Iowa Votes Steve King Out Of Congress After Nearly Two Decades; Trump Congratulates Primary Winner

Voters in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District ousted longtime GOP Rep. Steve King on Tuesday.

State Sen. Randy Feenstra won the Republican primary contest against King, beating the incumbent congressman with 45.7% of the vote. King earned just 36% of the vote, losing by roughly 8,000 ballots to close out his nearly two-decade career in the U.S. House, according to the Des Moines Register.

“I said from day one that Iowans deserve a proven, effective, conservative leader who will deliver results, and I have done that in the Iowa Senate,” Feenstra said in a late-night victory address streamed on Facebook. “I promise you I will deliver results in Congress.”

Feenstra will face Democrat J.D. Scholten, who lost to King by 3.4% in 2018, in the general. President Trump tweeted out a congratulations to Feenstra following his win.

“Congratulations to Randy Feenstra on your big win in the Iowa Republican Primary. You will be a great Congressman!” Trump said.
