Controversial Republican Rep. Steve King will win re-election to a ninth term representing Iowa’s 4th District despite recent criticism over a series of recent actions seen as racist, NBC News has projected.

King was challenged by Democratic nominee J.D. Scholten. A paralegal and former minor league baseball player, Scholten received more than $1 million in last-minute donations after a poll revealed that King could be more vulnerable to defeat in the conservative district than since his first election to Congress.

The article goes on to state the following:

For years, King has made comments seen as racist and anti-immigrant, including a tweet in support of two anti-Islam European politicians that said, “Cultural suicide by demographic transformation must end.”
