Congressman Steve King responds to JD Scholten debate

Congressman Steve King was in Siouxland today to “debate” and decide the winner of a Clay County Fair Contest.

At 9 am Saturday morning, the 4-H Rooster Crowing Contest took place in Spencer, Iowa.

Audience members had a certain amount of time to judge which rooster was the loudest and most likely to wake them in the early morning.

Following the debate and decision of the roster competition, Congressman King spoke for a few minutes about another debate he has recently been challenged to.

On Friday, King was challenged to J.D. Scholten’s youtube debate challenge.

King says he has not seen the challenge–but stated his stance on a future debate.

“If there’s not a clear division on issues here then you know if nobody’s criticizing the way I vote then they just call names and I don’t think that’s a very good reason to have a debate,” says Congressman Steve King.

In one day since the release of the video–, there have been over 400 views.
