King Erupts At Questioner Who Presses Him On Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooter

At least one poll has shown his Democratic challenger, J.D. Scholten, within striking distance, though FiveThirtyEight still gives King a almost 83 percent chance of winning.

Also on Tuesday, Land O'Lakes, the dairy and animal feed company with large agricultural interests in King's district, announced it would no longer support the congressman.

Even the Republican Party issued a sharp rebuke of King that stopped just short of saying he promoted white supremacy.

Video of the confrontation circulated widely after being captured by Iowa Starting Line, a political blog in Iowa.

"You, Steve King, have been quoted as saying, 'We can't restore our civilization with other people's babies.' You and the shooter both share an ideology that is anti-immigration", Van Fossen said.

"Iowa voters are overwhelmingly choosing to stick with Congressman Steve King's proven leadership, and they are rejecting his opponent's nasty, desperate, and dishonest attacks funded by San Francisco liberals", the statement said. "It's not tolerable to accuse me of being associated with a guy who shot 11 people in Pittsburgh". "I knew you were an ambusher when you walked in the room, but there is no basis for that and you get no question and you get no answer".

King was taking questions during a luncheon held at the Des Moines Partnership in downtown Des Moines when a man told King that he shared an ideology with the shooter at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday as a preface to a question. But the congressman cut him off. "You have crossed the line".

"No, don't you do that", King said, interrupting the man.

Visual tweaks hit Rainbow Six Siege ahead of release in Asian countries
These changes will affect all players, though as the French company noted none of these changes will have an impact on gameplay. While these are pretty notable changes, Ubisoft stresses that Rainbow Six: Siege will stay "true to its roots".

King can throw up all the straw men he likes - the media! the establishment! - but the reality of the situation goes like this: For years, he has promoted groups and viewpoints that, at best, border on racism.

He can say what he likes and the voters of Iowa's 4th District can decide whether those views represent their views and whether they want King to serve two more years as their member of Congress.

He also praised Austria's Freedom Party, which was founded by a former Nazi SS officer, for its anti-immigration platform and endorsed a candidate running for mayor in Toronto who has espoused white supremacist views.

NRCC spokesman Matt Gorman said that after the accumulation of King's "bigoted words and actions, the time had come for Chairman Stivers to speak out".

In the wake of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, King's white nationalist statements are once again under scrutiny.

King was speaking at a candidate forum in Des Moines.

King says he supports the president and believes he has the authority to make the change by executive order.

King's relationship with Sen. Fast Company reported that Intel, another company that donated to King, has dropped its support for his campaign.
