Steve King Wants You to Take the Town Halls to Washington
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) records a promotional video for the “Take the Town Halls to DC” campaign, promising activists some more results for this bout of lobbying.
“These members of Congress cannot reject you if you come here and look them in eye,” says King.
To some extent, this round of activism is kabuki for the cameras — all of the action is inside the Democratic caucus as wavering members are convinced to vote for the Senate bill. The “town hall” theme is meant to remind members what they’ll face when they come to their districts, but if those raucous responses came as surprises last year, they’re pretty rote now.
