We’re less than two weeks away from mid-term elections and U.S. Congressional Candidate J.D. Scholten continued his 39 county tour in Woodbury county Thursday.
About 50 Siouxlanders attended J.D.’s town hall meeting at Briar Cliff University. At the end of the meeting Scholten encouraged the community to join in conversation about the issues impacting Iowans. He says this is the most important part of his campaign.
Scholten says, “Every year I’m in office I’ve taken a pledge to do a town hall in all 39 counties because I like looking my constituents in the eyes and having that engagement with people where representative King is not seen or heard.”
Scholten is facing long time incumbent, Republican Steve King who is also is spending time on the road in the 4th District. We recently sat down with the congressman to find out how he sees the campaign going.
“I feel pretty good. It looks to me to be about the same as it has in the last several elections. Running ads that starts the conversation, but the elections are really decided at the coffee table, at work, at church, at play, where people talk to each other and a dialogue is taking place in the community really brings them to the conclusion of how they will vote in November,” said Rep. King.
King has been serving in congress for the past 15 years.
