Steve King (R-IA) has a GOP opponent.

Dr. Cyndi Hanson has announced she will run against King in the GOP primary.

So far, she looks much more sane than King.

As far as I know, she hasn't defended dog fighting, doesn't have a Confederate flag on her desk, hasn't talked about cantaloupe calves on immigrants, of any of the disgusting crap King has done.

After living in this district for over 20 years, I don't think any democrat could unseat King. Too many Evangelicals will support a republican over a democrat. (sounds like Alabama).

This will be interesting to see what happens as we draw closer to 2018.

2. nope

 

not unless you change your party affiliation.

unlike Alabama, there has been nothing done to try to change that.

I will have to recheck your laws, but I think there is a time limit on when you have to change your party.

There was talk at one time of changing the law that you have to vote registered for the same party in the primary and general election.
Not sure if that went through.
