Congressman Steve King was born and raised in the new 4th Congressional District. After attending college in Missouri, Congressman King returned to Iowa and began his career in the construction industry.
Wanting to take his destiny into his own hands, King started King Construction in 1975 with one barely-breathing bulldozer. After welding on the bulldozer for weeks, King Construction was born and built into a successful company.
In 1996, sensing the need for conservative change at the Iowa State Capitol, King climbed off his bulldozer and ran for the State Senate. King won the seat and served as a State Senator from 1996-2002.
In 2002, King was elected to the United States House of Representatives where he has served for the past ten years. In the House, King has fought for Iowa agriculture, a four-lane Highway 20, renewable energy, a balanced budget, stability and predictability in Washington leading to a competitive business environment and rural economic development.
Congressman King currently sits on the House Agriculture, Small Business and Judiciary Committees.
Following the 2010 census and reapportionment, King is running for Iowa's new 4th Congressional District. King recently unveiled his plan to "Restore Our American Dream" and get America working again. King's plan includes repealing ObamaCare, its job-killing effects, 21 new tax hikes and drastic cuts to Medicare, reigning in Washington's out-of-control spending through the passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, harnessing and harvesting all forms of American energy and creating stability in Washington for businesses to reinvest profit in research, technology and a larger and better compensated workforce.
King and his wife of 40 years, Marilyn, reside in Kiron, Iowa. They have three sons who, with their wives and families, all reside in the new 4th District.
