House Republican lawmakers are openly expressing support for Rep. Steve King’s (R-Iowa) main primary challenger after the incumbent’s latest controversial remarks about abortion, rape and incest.
Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-Mich.), the sophomore class representative in House GOP leadership, says he plans to contribute the maximum amount to King’s primary opponent.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I will be openly contributing to his primary opponent and encouraging others to do the same. Enough of his destructive commentary,” said Mitchell, who recently announced his plans to retire from Congress next year.
“In my opinion Steve King does not reflect the values or principles of our conference,” Mitchell added.
Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), who led the House GOP’s campaign arm in the last cycle, said he’s thinking about supporting King’s primary opponent.

Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre. As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.
