Iowa’s conservative kingmaker Steve King on why Ted Cruz is gaining momentum

Rep. Steve King, the seven-term congressman known as the conservative kingmaker of Iowa, the first place in the nation where voters officially weigh in on presidential candidates, sees Sen. Ted Cruz’s recent rise in the state polls and feels validation.

King, whose support is diligently pursued by Republicans running for office, particularly the Oval Office, endorsed Cruz for president in mid-November.

“I’m happy about what I see,” King said in an interview with Fox News Latino. “When I see the poll results, everything I’ve seen says there’s one candidate that has serious momentum, and that’s Ted Cruz. I have people coming up to me at church Sunday night, at the reception after [the mass], saying they’re supporting Cruz. That comports with the polls I’ve seen of Iowa.”

    Steve King is an AWESOME, TRUE CONSERVATIVE and NOT a RHINO. He SUPPORTS Ted Cruz because Cruz is a MAN of his WORD and because Ted is ALSO a TRUE CONSERVATIVE. I believe those like the people BELOW– who post IMMATURE, UNEDUCATED remarks–NEED to READ all of those CREDENTIALS and WORK EXPERIENCE Ted Cruz HAS to be PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF! Go to the HERITAGE CENTER. Ted was ON there a few DAYS ago: his EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND will ASTOUND you! Ted is the ONLY one TRULY QUALIFIED to be PRESIDENT and be our COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF of our US MILITARY!

    Does anyway really care about Iowa anymore? Less than 100,000 – way less – participate in the caucuses. Santorum did great last time, and look how well Iowa did picking him? Iowa and the Party need to admit that this – and every campaign from now on – will be a national one and not regional ones with this silly, pretentious caucus in the lead.

    I think Iowa may be wrong this time. Most of the country is not backing the ‘politics as usual’ .

            Not really. I am in my 70’s so I have been OBSERVING and participating for a long long time and having lived on a farm for about 30 years I have a habit of watching anything resembling farm reports where crops are concerned and if you did the same you would KNOW there is some truth in what I said, I just tried a vague attempt at humor. Are you one of THOSE who thinks the food grows in the cans and boxes on the shelves? And I really like Mr. Cruz but do not consider him a good candidate as a war president,nor Rubio or most of the others, however, I do think Cruz is teachable via advisors which is more than I can say for the present adm.
