Iowa Rep. Steve King spoke with CQ Roll Call about how he’ll approach the 2020 primary for the 4th District seat he first won in 2002.

Along with criticizing media coverage, he said he would use social media as a form of public record of his town hall meetings. Moving forward, King said he would stand on “timeless” principles that appeal to his rural district.

This interview took place Tuesday, before King drew criticism for saying humanity might not exist without rape and incest.
