    Totally not racist King not being on any committees was already the beginning of the end. Quintupling down on his idiocy should mean it’s finally time to make him unemployed.

    Still...you have to wonder if that’s the most racist Congressional district in the country. They kept re-electing him knowing who he was.

    His district is NW Iowa, not including any of what they call "cities" in that state. I'm pretty sure most of them have never actually seen a minority anywhere but on TV.

    Being not a racist has a lot of non-consequences.

    Last election though was close. The Iowa GOP saw the writing on the wall and didn't want to risk losing what otherwise was a safe seat and possibly hurting Joni Ernst Senate Reelection. My understanding is that the Democrat is a pretty good candidate and is the same one who almost beat King last time even though the district went by 27 points for Trump. I don't know what his chances are now that King is out.

    Last two polls from Iowa have shown a neck and neck race for Ernst and Greenfield. Would be a big flip, but a Dem did hold the seat for 30 years prior to Ernst getting elected in 2014.

    As far as the 4th, it's hard to tell. The only poll that's been taken recently was August last year and had the Dem (Scholten) beating King by 5 points. With King out of the way, I imagine the gap will be closer...the Des Moines register did a poll in March to find out what would happen if it was a generic Dem and a generic Republican and the Republican won by 11 points.

    The guy who beat King maybe not outwardly racist but he's pretty ultra conservative in his own right. Yes, it's great King is gone. But I'm not sure the repub nominee is really that much better.
