Steve King is defeated and abandoned by his colleagues while running for re-election



As he prepares for a difficult re-election cycle, Steve King's campaign is tied to money. Individual contributions to the Iowa Republican continue to be received, but support from corporate donors and King's own colleagues has disappeared entirely.

This year, King did not receive any input from a political action committee associated with a sitting member of Congress. Corporate SCCs and interest groups also rejected it completely. In the first six months of the year, King received only two contributions from third-party political entities: $ 2,000 in donations from PACs related to two former members of Congress, Lamar Smith (R-TX) and the infamous Todd Akin (R-MO).

This is a remarkable, though not entirely unpredictable, abandonment of a sitting member of Congress. Although always controversial and far to the right of most of his colleagues, King burned virtually all the bridges in the party this year with foreign commentary on white supremacy and abortion.
