Rep. Steve King to Christie: Come to Iowa and we'll see for 2016

The tea party had a very bad election night.

Two big losses, including the Virginia governor's race and a runoff election in Alabama against a Republican establishment candidate.

5 things we learned from Election Night 2013

Has the tea party lost its power?

There are many in the Republican party who hope so, and think a dying Tea Party will allow the GOP to win a national race.

OutFront: Tea Party favorite, Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa.

    Steve King's one of the guys ran the Club For Growth hitjob on our statesman Richard Lugar... How much of a Benedict Arnold do you have to be to order a contract on your own party's most admired statesman?

    As to 2016, Loyalty & Authenticity are probably two of the greatest virtues to be admired. Hillary Clinton represents that which is best about Loyalty, Christie represents that which is best of Authenticity. And if we're all lucky enough to have THAT be the choice before America 3 years from now? We should be so lucky.
