Washington, DC — Iowa’s senior Senator has endorsed the incumbent fourth district Congressman.
Senator Chuck Grassley is throwing his support behind Congressman Steve King in the June primary.
Grassley says he’s supported Congressman King in his previous elections, and Grassley has been supporting him in this election.
King also received an endorsement from Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey of Spirit Lake at the recent Fourth District Convention in Fort Dodge.
King faces a Republican challenger in the June primary. Iowa State Senator Rick Bertrand of Sioux City has thrown his hat into the ring for the fourth district chair. The winner will face the only Democrat to file for the position, Kim Weaver of Sheldon in the general election in November.
The primary is on June 7th.
