Rep. Steve King (R-IA) feels extremely ill-used by his caucus leaders and is determined to get his committee assignments back now after about a week has passed since his most recent offensive comments.

According to Politico, he has only been able to rally minimal support to the cause.

His closest allies in Congress, far-right conservatives like Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), have been struggling to rustle up enough signatures to get King his assignments back.

And in another bleak sign for the nine-term incumbent, his fundraising has been anemic so far in 2019 and he’s already facing down multiple GOP challengers.
