While Trump-endorsed Vichy Republican, Renee Ellmers, was being humiliated in her primary last night (she was relying on a “Trump bump” to win — I am not making that up), Ted Cruz surrogate, Iowa Representative Steve King, was racking up a 2:1 win, beating his challenger by a whopping 34 points.
Steve King is not popular with the political power structure in Iowa for a lot of reasons, some of them quite valid reasons. When he supported Ted Cruz, who is against the RFS boondoggle, he went too far. The crony capitalist establishment recruited a state senator, Rick Bertrand, to challenge Steve King.
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.
