Scott interviews J.D. Scholten, a first-time Democratic candidate for Congress in northwest Iowa’s 4th District which includes Sioux City, stretching from Interstate 35 to Interstate 29 in the farm belt, which includes his family farm. He is fighting to unseat long-time incumbent GOP legislator Steve King who’s best known outside the district for his white nationalist views. Tariffs are just taxes Republicans raised on middle-class Americans, and they are strangling the farmers in Scholten’s district, which he says is threatening to harm his state’s thriving agri-business sector for years if not for decades to follow, and he wants to join the House of Representatives to end the White House’s damaging trade war.
