Rock Rapids, Iowa — Iowa 4th District US Congressman Steve King is going to be in northwest Iowa on Monday.
This is the second town meeting that King will be attending since House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy stripped King of all his committee assignments in the aftermath of a New York Times interview in which King says he was misquoted.
King narrowly defeated Democratic challenger J.D. Scholten in November, by only three percentage points. One of Scholten’s talking points was that King didn’t hold town hall meetings.
Congressman King says he will be holding the town hall meeting on Monday, February 18th in Lyon County. The event is open to the public and to the media. The town hall will be held from 12:00-1:00 p.m. at the Forster Community Center, 404 First Avenue in Rock Rapids. Staffers say this town hall will be the second of the 39 scheduled town halls King will be holding this year.
