Early, Iowa – Upon the closing of the filing period today at 5:00 pm, Congressman Steve King sent a proposal for a series of six debates to his apparent general election opponent, Christie Vilsack. “I am glad the likely nominees for our respective parties are established,” King remarked. “In the proposal I sent Mrs. Vilsack, I call for six debates equitably distributed across the new 4th Congressional District.”
King and Vilsack are the only candidates who filed for the nomination of their respective political parties. King filed nomination petitions for his re-election with the Iowa Secretary of State on Wednesday, March 13. Volunteers for King’s campaign collected 8506 signatures, far exceeding the 1668 signature minimum, and qualified each of the 39 counties in the 4th District.
King currently represents Iowa’s 5th Congressional District and serves on the U.S. House Agriculture, Judiciary, and Small Business Committees. He is seeking re-election in Iowa’s new 4th Congressional District of which he is a lifelong resident.
“I look forward to Mrs. Vilsack’s response and to debating the issues important to Iowans,” King said.
