Steve King says poll showing his Democratic challenger just 1 point behind “fake news”

Steve King, speaking in Mason City back in 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican Congressman Steve King says a poll showing his Democratic challenger just 1 point behind is “fake news” then asks for donations to “fight back against his “liberal, far left opponent”.

The headline from Conservative firebrand Steve King Wednesday morning reads, “BREAKING Fake News Poll: New poll shows anti-immigration firebrand Steve King up by just one point” (45-44).

King is referring to his Democratic Challenger, J.D. Scholten, who may be making headway in his campaign to unseat the 8-term Congressman in Iowa’s Fourth District. Scholten is running a well-financed, energetic campaign while King appears to be doing little but making headlines, as he always does.  Those headlines have, in fact, lost King some donors and some newspapers who backed him in the past are now endorsing Scholten.

King said in the email received in the NIT newsroom, “I’ve got bad news: A newly released online poll puts my Democrat challenger just 1% behind me – that’s a virtual tie.” Then, however, he called the poll “another fake news attack” and pointed to his own internal polling which reportedly puts him up at least 10 points.

King asked for an “emergency donation” to “Enable me to fight back” against the “fake news, out-of-state special interests, and liberal dark money backing my far left opponent.”

King does not appear to be buying much advertising in his campaign, but does pay family members salaries to be associated with the campaign.

The election is set for November 6.

    Congratulations Steve King! We’re so happy that you won after all those unfounded anti-Steve King commercials paid for by outside groups.

      You’re happy to be paying a guy a six figure salary who is really, really bad at his job?!?!?!?! The guy has passed exactly 1 bill in 16 years! Without even considering the other issues with the guy that the media focuses in on, Steve King has just really been a terrible waste of tax payer money and is awful at his job.

        Thank you for calling me that. I don’t really care for the Cafo-queen and was leaning towards Hubbell, but your words of wisdom made me do a straight ticket vote after all. Boy, it feels good to be a Republiperv!

    Where does all of his campaign money go? I haven’t seen an ad on tv or received one in the mail. He won’t debate, he won’t campaign. But, he will travel to Middle Eastern countries who love fascists.
