(Wall Lake, IA) U.S Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) has endorsed Congressman Steve King (R-IA) for re-election.

“I am honored to receive Joni Ernst’s endorsement and support. We first met in the middle of the night on one my trips to visit troops. Then Captain Ernst commanded the 1168th transportation company tasked with hauling supplies overland from Kuwait to Baghdad. I quickly learned Captain Ernst’s first concern was for her troops. I have seen Joni progress through the ranks all the way to United States Senator. Most importantly, she has grown into each more difficult responsibility with the skills of a natural leader,” King said.

In her endorsement, Ernst said King stands strong for life and liberty, pointing out his support of military serving overseas as well as when they return home. Ernst also cited King’s championing of the expansion of US Highway 20 for safety and business growth. She remarked on his support of renewable fuels and the fuel blender tax credit as well. “Steve is a friend to small businesses in our Iowa towns and the agriculture industry that helps drive our state,” Ernst remarked. “I hope you’ll join me and support Steve King for Congress.”

Among others, King has received the endorsements of Senator Chuck Grassley and of Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey.

King serves on the US House Agriculture, Judiciary, and Small Business Committees. In 2015, he was named Chairman of the Executive Overreach Task Force by Speaker Paul Ryan. King has long chaired the Conservative Opportunity Society (COS), an organization founded by Speaker Newt Gingrich and others in 1983. COS is the leading voice for Constitutional and conservative principles in the U.S. House and represents one of only a half dozen seats at Speaker Ryan’s discussion table each week.

Congressman King is the founder of King Construction. A former small business owner, King resides in rural Sac County, Iowa, with his wife of 43 years, Marilyn. The Kings have three happily married sons and seven grandchildren; all the Kings live within 10 miles of each other.
