Scholten’s Democratic Congressional Campaign Reports Slight Shift In 4th District Rankings

Iowa’s Democratic 4th Congressional District candidate, J.D. Sholten, has reported today (Tuesday) that a recent ranking on Inside Elections has shown a slight shift in ratings. The mark has been moved from Leans Republican to Tilts Republican. “This seat is winnable,” Scholten says. “These rating changes in our favor prove what we’ve long known and what we’ve been seeing on the ground: if you show up, prove that you’re honest and trustworthy and that you’re fighting for the people, you’ll earn support.” Scholten goes on to say the race is far from over, but they are grateful for the hard work of supporters and volunteers and he will continue to travel the district, listening to every voter, regardless of political affiliation. In October, 4th District Incumbent, Republican Steve King, announced that an internal poll shows him holding 59 percent of the support of the district’s voters. This represented a 44-point lead from the 400 likely primary voters polled by G1 Survey Research. King’s report showed a 72 percent job approval rating and that 74 percent of those polled agree that King has been misquoted in the mainstream media. Much like Scholten, King believes these results mirror what he has been seeing in all 39 counties of the district. At this time, Scholten is the only Democratic candidate. King is joined on the Republican side by Randy Feenstra, Steve Reeder, Bret Richards and Jeremy Taylor, all vying for the party nomination in the Republican primary on June 2.
