Virtually penniless Iowa Rep. Steve King has been abandoned by members of his party and GOP donors.

I guess white supremacy is not necessarily a winning political message for all Republicans.

As he gears up for a difficult re-election cycle, Rep. Steve King’s campaign is strapped for cash. Individual donations to the Iowa Republican are down considerably from past cycles and support from corporate donors and King’s own colleagues have vanished entirely.

King has not received a single contribution this year from a political action committee associated with a sitting member of Congress. Corporate PACs and interest groups have also completely shunned him. Through the first six months of the year, King received just two contributions from third party political entities: $2,000 donations from PACs associated with two former members of Congress, Lamar Smith (R-TX) and the infamous Todd Akin (R-MO).

It is a remarkable though not entirely unpredictable abandonment of a sitting member of Congress. Though he was always controversial and further to the right than most of his colleagues, King has burned virtually all his bridges in the party this year with outlandish comments about white supremacy and abortion.

At a recent town hall King only had one person show up to hear him speak. 

Yeah I think it’s time for Steve King to hang up his white hood and call it a day.

    @MichelleObama
    On #WomensEqualityDay, I’m proud of all the women and girls who are out there empowering others in their communities to make their voices heard. Thank you all for the work you’re doing, and I hope you’ll share your story with @USOWomen and @WhenWeAllVote!

    Today is #WomensEqualityDay, commemorating the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment, which prohibits the states & federal government from denying the right to vote to U.S. citizens on the basis of sex. Of course, the 19th Amendment did not guarantee the right of all women to vote.

    This Iowan feels the need to apologize for him. He never comes around Des Moines more than he has to. His shit isn’t tolerated here.

    Iowa will go blue before your know it. Or at least purple.

    If they can abandon King, why not Trump?

    Wisconsin rep Sean Duffy is resigning at the end of September to devote time to his family. His NINTH child is due and will have a significant medical condition.
