OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Iowa Rep. Steve King said he will seek re-election in 2020, despite recent controversy surrounding the republican.

King sparked an uproar after being quoted in a New York Times story saying, "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western Civilization... How did that language become offensive?"

The representative said it was, at best, a misquote.

Republican House leadership stripped him of his committee assignments after the article ran.

King said that in his re-election campaign he will stress his close ties to President Donald Trump.
