Sen. Mitt Romney Calls On Rep. Steve King To Resign

Mediaite reports:

Sen. Mitt Romney called on Rep. Steve King to resign Monday, after the Iowa congressman asked why the term “white supremacist” was considered offensive in an interview. Romney, the newly-elected Utah senator, spoke to CNN’s Manu Raju about King, who has been condemned by Republican party leadership.

“I think he ought to step aside and I think Congress ought to make it very clear he has no place there,” Romney said. Romney is the first Republican lawmaker to call on King — a nine-term congressman who was reelected in the 2018 midterms — to resign.
