HULL, Iowa – State Senator Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, a Republican candidate in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District race, raised $190,077 in the fourth quarter of 2019 and has $489,000 cash in the bank leading up to the June 2nd  Republican primary. 

The most recent fundraising quarter marked the second best of the year for Feenstra, bringing the total raised for the campaign to $721,272. 

“Iowans are getting shortchanged by Congressman King and our fundraising success is a clear sign that people want their voice back.  Because of his own actions, King lost his committee assignments in Washington, meaning the folks of Iowa’s 4th District lack a voice on the powerful Agriculture and Judiciary Committees.  It’s time to turn the page and elect an effective conservative with a track record of results,” Feenstra said.

The Feenstra campaign has received 1,570 contributions with 421 of those coming in the 4th quarter. 

“Randy’s momentum continues to grow as we see support from new people in the district every day.  At this point in the campaign, fundraising is one of the few verifiable markers for people to measure a campaign’s success.   And by all measurements, Randy has dwarfed Congressman King, “Matt Leopold, Feenstra’s campaign manager, said.

In addition to his fundraising, Feenstra attracted the support of former Governor Terry Branstad, social conservative leader Bob Vander Plaats, more than 500 county chairs and 250 student chairs as well as numerous elected and conservative activist leaders throughout the Iowa’s 4th Congressional District.

  1. How much of that money is from out of state – people bent on getting rid of King. Feenstra would only be another establishment guy, voting how they tell him to vote. No thanks.

      1. Since the 4th Quarter docs are not up on the FEC website or Open Secrets I can’t tell you how much of that quarter’s donations are from out-of-state, but judging from the past you are attempting to advance a narrative that is simply false.

  2. Feenstra’s comment says it all – Iowa being shortchanged because King is losing committee assignments. Translation – King can’t bring home the pork that people want. As H.L. Mencken said, “In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.” This is why government spending will always increase.

    This shows who really runs our government, and it isn’t voters. The political establishment wins again.
