It is doubtful Rep. Steve King could retain his job in Washington if he represented the 3rd Congressional district of Iowa. His extremism would not be tolerated by many voters in the Des Moines metro. So how does Rep. David Young, who votes essentially in lockstep with King, keep his seat?
Once again, Young has joined King and Rep. Rod Blum in kowtowing to GOP leadership.
