Four Fourth District GOP Candidates Speak At Forest City

Forest City, Iowa — Republican Congressman Steve King and his three GOP primary opponents spoke at a fundraising dinner in Forest City Thursday night. Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor suggested Republicans can’t trust King to win the fourth district race in 2020. Taylor told the crowd he won in his home county convincingly in 2018, while King lost Woodbury County by four-thousand votes along with other key counties.

King recently sparked controversy by saying that given “all the rape and pillage” over the centuries, there might not be any population of the world left if all the “products of rape and incest” were removed from “all the family trees.” And King Thursday night defended his call for banning all abortions, without exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

State Senator Randy Feenstra of Hull promised the crowd he’d tackle out of control federal spending if he’s elected.

Bret Richards, the former mayor of Irwin, touted his experience in the Army and as a businessman. He criticized Congress for its budgeting practices.

The fourth district candidates spoke at a joint Winnebago and Hancock County Republican Party dinner held at Waldorf University. The group spoke at a Story County fundraiser on Tuesday night and Feenstra won a straw poll taken at that event in Nevada.
