The audience posed questions to King about topics ranging from Black Lives Matter, to restoring common sense to government agencies, to refugees. A couple of those in attendance took Congressman King to task for his much-reported “old white guys” comment in an MSNBC interview. King responded that he had his staff go through the text of the exchange, as well as the criticisms written about him as a result, and decided there was no reason to “walk away from” his comments.
King was also asked about the recent payment of $400-million to Iran, immediately prior to the Iranians releasing 4 U.S. hostages. Here’s what he had to say.
Prior to Wednesday afternoon’s meeting, the Congressman toured the Rosenboom Machine & Tool facility in Sheldon. We asked him about that tour.
When Congressman King left Sheldon after the Town Hall Meeting, he traveled to Storm Lake to attend a Republican Party event Wednesday evening.
