HULL, Iowa – State Senator Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced on Tuesday that his campaign has received the public endorsements of 608 Iowans representing all 39 counties in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District. This is in addition to the 261 members of Students for Feenstra. The campaign previously announced over 500 county chairs. Feenstra, 51, is challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Steve King, 70, for the Republican nomination in a five-way primary in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District.

“Iowans deserve a seat at the table in Congress. There are too many important issues for us to be left voiceless and have ineffective representation. We need someone to stand up for Iowa agriculture, reign in spending, defend our borders and be an effective, conservative leader in Congress.   As an Iowa Senator, I have proven record of conservative results, I’ll do the same in Congress.” Feenstra said. 

“Our campaign is building an organization and raising the money to win. Not only has Randy Feenstra consistently trounced Steve King in Iowa fundraising support, Feensta has surpassed any of King’s previous organizational markers with today’s announcement.   The campaign is seeing ongoing support from past King supporters as they come to understand Randy’s record of conservative accomplishment compared to the record of ineffectiveness provided by Congressman King,” Matt Leopold, Feenstra’s campaign manager, said.

Feenstra represents Iowa Senate District 2 and has served in the Iowa Senate since 2009. Along with his conservative voting record in the Iowa Senate, he crafted the largest income tax cut in Iowa history.  His campaign has earned the endorsement of former Governor Terry Branstad, Bob Vander Plaats, the president and CEO of The FAMiLY Leader, State Senator Annette Sweeney, R-Alden, State Senator Tim Kraayenbrink, R-Ft. Dodge, State Senator Waylon Brown, R-Osage, State Rep. Dan Huseman, R-Aurelia, and State Rep. Megan Jones, R-Spencer. 

As of the 3rd quarter fundraising report, Feenstra held a 10-to-1 cash on hand advantage over King, outraising him in every quarter since the start of the primary campaign.
