Steve King raising campaign cash…for congressional committee

Congressman Steve King, the Republican from Kiron who has yet to announce his decision about a race for the U.S. Senate, is raising money for his congressional campaign committee today.  Read King’s fundraising email to supporters below. It’s focused on his opposition to the immigraton reform bill that’s emerged in the U.S. Senate.

Dear Friend,

There is only one word you need to to know about the Gang of Eight’s immigration legislation…


Last week, comprehensive immigration reform legislation was introduced in the Senate and as expected, includes a “pathway to citizenship” for the vast majority of illegal immigrants currently residing in America.

There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it…this bill grants AMNESTY to millions of people here illegally!

Friend, D.C. insiders’ idea of immigration reform is the perfect example of what is wrong with Washington – and our Party. The self-styled Senate’s “Gang of Eight” and their counterpart in the House have iced out conservatives once again.

But we won’t let them get away with it.

That’s why I’m asking you to stand with me right now to demand amnesty be taken off the table! Please follow this link right now to donate $25, $50, $100 or more to my campaign and help me fight back.

Your donation to my campaign today is critical to allowing me to fight two battles—one against the immigration reform bill and one against those determined to defeat me. You see, I’m a huge target of the open borders crowd and they’ll spend millions of dollars attacking me. In fact, the election is more than a year-and-a-half away and they’re already saying vicious and inaccurate things about me!

So can I count on your immediate donation to help me fight back?

The Gang of Eight’s bill is aggressive and outrageous amnesty which contains only promises of a plan for border security when that’s the biggest immigratin issue we face! I expected this from Democrats, but come on Senate Republicans—you should know better! Republicans who support this bill have effectively said to Americans, “We are prepared to sacrifice the Rule of Law on the altar of misguided and erroneous political expediency.”

That’s why I’m working alongside five fellow authentic conservatives in the House to halt the Senate’s legislation once it arrives in our Chamber. It’s an uphill battle, and we need conservatives like you to force the establishment to listen to us.

But we have a finite window of time to act. I can’t emphasize enough how important this is. You see, Barack Obama wants amnesty to be the hallmark piece of his legacy and he’s already got influential Republicans in the Senate to drink the Kool-Aid. It’s now or never to STOP AMNESTY!

So won’t you stand with me to fight amnesty by donating $25, $50 $100 or more right away?

It’s not just me counting on you today. It’s every American who believes in the Constitution and the rule of law, and works hard every day to make ends meet. Thank you in advance for your support.

Steve King
Member of Congress, Iowa

P.S. The Senate immigration bill grants AMNESTY to millions of illegal immigrants and we must STOP it in its tracks. Please stand with me and fight for true immigration reform by donating $25, $50, $100 or more today. Thanks—Steve
