NIT – Steve King already proclaimed he has a target on his back, because he claims he has “taken a principled, conservative stance against amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

Now, his challenger in the upcoming 4th District Congressional election seems to be zeroing in on that target, as Democratic candidate Jim Mowrer posted a wide victory in fundraising totals, Federal Election Commission reports released this week show.

According to the reporting period ending March 31, Mowrer’s fundraising total was $351,107, while King raised $121,041.

The 4th Congressional District of Iowa will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Democrat Jim Mowrer, a former soldier who worked in the Pentagon and served in Iraq, has challenged incumbent Republican Steve King in the upcoming election. Mowrer, who announced he would be a candidate in July of 2013, now lives in Boone.

Reports surfaced earlier that Mowrer out-raised King on the campaign trail in the previous quarter, too. The Sioux City Journal reported that Mowrer raised $175,362 during the months of October through December, compared with $162,850 for King during that tme frame.

    King is a right wing wacko and he’ll get elected because the voters are just as wacko. Make no mistake about it, many if not most Iowan’s hate immigrants, gays, med pot users are a ton of other people as well. They want it to stay the same white trash place that it is. There I said it, somebody had to.

      “King is a right wing wacko and he’ll get elected because the voters are just as wacko.”

      Using your logic, NOW I finally understand how Obama got elected twice as president. Thanks for clearing this up for all of us.

      @Brosephus-Talk about wacko’s, read your own post. You should be committed. You and people like you are everything that is wrong with this country and the state of Iowa. Cheap shots like your’s are a libraterds best weapon.

        But some of what Bro said it is true. There is no question about that. Iowa is one of the few places where smart people are made fun of as a sport.

    The $$$ keeps pouring into the Mowrer campaign because the 4th district voters are finally realizing what an embarrassment King is. He is a jackass surrounded by jackasses (see accompanying photo).

    Dream on NIT – King will prevail big time – even though you wish $ were votes.

      What makes you think NIT cares who wins that election? King makes great headlines.

        I think NIT cares because you love putting up horrendous pictures but not for yourself. JMHO.

    No, Brosephus, the silence is deafening because 2014 will be a great Republican year, and because King still has way more cash on hand than his opponent can hope to raise. This is just another press release put out by the Mowrer campaign trying to look like news. If King could beat Christie Villsack when Obama was on the ballot, he will have no trouble with this guy.

      KIng beat Vilsack because she was unprepared for that ass hat. Any candidate who has a connection to the everyday people who can get things done. People like the owner of this paper who know how to use new technology to meet the needs of the community. King has no answers for the state of iowa that is why he sounds like a crackpot.

    It’s funny, the silence is deafening because most NIT readers are anti immigrant.

      That is because most people in this community are uninformed about the world that we live in. Many get their information from news sources that are antiquated and are not fluid enough to deal with the tremendous amount of information that is out there. Most people don’t have reasonably priced and if they do have internet access they don’t have the ability or the time to use it.
