Story County Democrats hosted a gathering at SCORE Park in Nevada last week, featuring J.D. Scholten, who is challenging Steve King for Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District seat in Congress. The event, held at a popular Nevada recreation area, hosted approximately 100 people who came to hear Scholten speak. “A Whole New Ball Game” was the topic of the event. Scholten stated that now, in the 13th month of campaigning, he feels that he has a real good chance of defeating King. He told the group that he is here to help people and to improve the lives of Iowans. Scholten is kicking off his “39 Counties in 39 town halls” and says he is here to play, compete and to win.
