Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) won’t endorse Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who faces a contested Republican primary in 2020, according to WHO-DT in Des Moines.

Reynolds, who has been critical of King since his narrow victory last November, said she’ll remain neutral in the 2020 primary. The Iowa congressman served as one of Reynolds’s campaign co-chairs for her 2018 reelection race.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The last election was a wake-up call for it to be that close,” Reynolds told the local TV station in an interview. “That indicates that it does open the door for other individuals to take a look at that.”

“I will stay out of the primary. I’m not going to weigh in.”

King, a conservative immigration hardliner, has gotten into hot water for making racially charged comments and publicly supporting a white nationalist candidate. That’s prompted deep criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
