Jan 11, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON- Rep. Paul Cook (R-Apple Valley) issued the following statement on Rep. Steve King's recent controversial and racist remarks:

"Unfortunately, Rep. Steve King's latest remarks regarding white supremacy are only the latest example in a pattern of racist statements and actions dating back years. Whether deriding racial minorities at home or cavorting with Nazis and white supremacists abroad, Mr. King brings dishonor to himself, the party of Abraham Lincoln, and his nation. Racists have no place in public life, and we should reconsider whether Mr. King has the moral authority to continue serving in Congress."
