Tired of the outrageous and stupid comments coming out of Iowa congressman Steve King?
But what can we do? Easy! We can support his Democratic challenger Christie Vilsack.
As teacherken wrote in his post from February:
Christie will be the Democratic candidate in the 4th Congressional District in Iowa. The Republican is Congressman Steve King.I would add to the above, about name recognition, Christie's husband Tom Vilsack, former Governor of Iowa is also Obama's current Secretary of Agriculture.
Yeah, that Steve King. The racist, homophobic, birther, hateful Steve King.
The district is winnable - it is a new district, about 1/2 of which he has never represented.
A half that includes Iowa State University.
Christie already has name recognition from her 8 years as Iowa's First Lady.
Look at this prediction at Red State that King will lose. Christie is the right candidate to defeat him.
Yes, if you want, you can go to Christie's website and contribute money. I don't have much, but have already given her several hundred dollars. You can poke around her website to find out more about her and her campaign.
Christie was a teacher before she became First Lady of Iowa. She is a good person. She is politically astute. She would be a credit to the House.
She would also be the first woman elected to the House or Senate from Iowa.
Electing her will rid the House of one of its worst and most destructive members.
So what can we do? Contribute what you can on ActBlue, or go to Christie's website, get on her mailing list and help out with phone banking. Talk about her on Facebook every time you see someone complain about Steve King.
