Butler County’s new congressman since 2012 redistricting, Republican Steve King, made a stop in Allison Monday.

In likely one of his first visits to Butler with 39 counties encompassing his district, King said the area felt like home.

“This part of the state is not foreign to me,” he said. “I spent my grade school years in Hancock County, and I’ve traveled through all of Iowa on construction and business…A lot of people would sacrifice a great deal to raise their families in the kind of environment you have here.”
