Iowans React to King's Removal from Ag Committee
Republican Steve King has a long history of remarks that offend. That history caught up with him Monday when he was removed from his committee assignments in Congress after he defended the use of terms like "white supremacy" in an interview with the New York Times.
During this hour of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with political analysts Dennis Goldford of Drake Universiy and Tim Hagle of the University of Iowa about King's comments and why he's being reprimanded now.
We also hear a recap of yesterday's Condition of the State address delivered by Governor Kim Reynolds and talk about confirmation hearings for Attorney Heneral nominee William Barr, which wrapped up this afternoon after this program aired.
