Steve King not Ruling Out 2014 Senate Bid

November 9, 2012

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, won't close the door to challenging Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin in 2014.

King is coming off a pricey reelection battle against former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack, winning a sixth term in office by about 8 percentage points.

"There's a question I hadn't had time to contemplate since the election," King told reporters. "We're only in the second day after the election."

King, on a challenge to Harkin (who is 73 and hasn't announced whether he'll run for reelection), per the Cedar Rapids Gazette:

"I know that's something that is on the horizon," King said, "but I think there are some decisions that need to be made before I could comment on that."

He wants to keep his options open, "but, on the other hand, I don't want to raise expectations unnecessarily."

King is a social conservative (he even voiced support for GOP Rep. Todd Akin this summer when his "legitimate rape" comments caused a firestorm), but said he's not too conservative to run statewide.
