U.S. Rep. Steve King finished out the second fundraising quarter behind some of his GOP challengers — only raising about 60 percent as much as his most prominent rival, State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, according to recent Federal Election Commission filings.
That figure may not be worrisome for King’s fans. The longtime 4th District representative typically raises much less than his opponents on both sides of the aisle, but still comes away with victories in the primary and general elections. King raised a total of almost $92,000 this period, and ends the quarter with about $18,000 on hand.
In comparison, Feenstra raised $140,000 in the second quarter and ended it with almost $340,000 on hand. Republican Jeremy Taylor, another contender, had less than $45,000 on hand at the end of the quarter.
