AFSCME, House Majority PAC and SEIU join forces against Iowa Rep. Steve King

August 9, 2012

The labor union AFSCME, along with SEIU and the pro-Democratic candidate House Majority PAC, are pooling resources for a $400,000, four-week ad buy against Iowa Rep. Steve King, officials said.

The spot, which is set to run in the Des Moines and Sioux City markets, will hit King – one of the staunchest conservatives in the House – on issues like votes for a pay hike, and junkets paid for by outside groups.

King is facing a challenge from former Iowa first lady Christie Vilsack. This is the second ad the three are airing on her behalf.
