Steve King: ‘I Can See A Path To Victory’

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Iowa Republicans over the weekend that he now sees a path to victory if he were to launch a Senate campaign in the state, the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reported Saturday.

King, who is in his sixth term representing western Iowa, said he has polled the state and had three intensive meetings over the past 10 days or so to discuss his prospects.

 

“Now, I can tell you that I can see a path to victory that I couldn’t see a week or a little more ago,” he told a roomful of Republicans at the Red Crow Grille in Bettendorf.

King also said he is close to making a decision on whether to run for Senate, according to the report.
