Current House Scoreboard
Bottom Line

Representative Steve King is one of 45 Republican incumbents who raised less money than their challengers during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Most incumbents, even those who raised less money than their challengers last year, still have more money in the bank than their opponents. They can draw upon resources from earlier campaigns to begin 2018 with a cash advantage. However, Representative King is one of only 13 Republican incumbents to have less cash on hand as the New Year began.
