King and Vilsack Debate For Fourth Time At Orange City

(Orange City) -- Republican Steve King and Democrat Christie Vilsack faced off in a fourth debate held last evening (Thursday) at Northwestern College in Orange City. The two sparred on issues relating to immigration, gun control, and even the farm bill.  Recent polls show a narrowing of the gap between Congressman Steve King and his challenger, Democrat Christie Vilsack, but King says he anticipated as much, and he says his campaign is still on track.

Vilsack says if there is one issue that resonates the most with the people of the 4th District, it would be the farm bill.  She says there isn't any other legislation more important than the farm bill, and she again is critical of King's lack of leadership.
