Congressman-elect Randy Feenstra has stood by his conservative constituents in Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District and their desire for a fair, honest 2020 Presidential election.

Feenstra is, as the Des Moines Register put it, one of Iowa’s last holdouts in terms of acknowledging Joe Biden as President-elect.

Good for Feenstra.

Better for his Fourth District constituents.

Keep in mind polling has shown that 30 percent of Democrats — Democrats believe the election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump.

Nevermind the overwhelming majority of Republicans who believe the election was stolen from President Trump.

The Fourth District is one of the most conservative congressional districts in the nation. And Feenstra is now the standard-bearer for the Fourth District.

It is no secret The Iowa Standard has concerns about some of the people Feenstra surrounded himself with and a couple of things that happened throughout the Fourth District campaign.

As Feenstra prepares to be sworn into Congress in early 2021, the slate starts clean. And this issue — election security and election integrity — is Feenstra’s first significant test as a congressman.

Feenstra signed a letter along with about 25 other incoming congressional representatives earlier this week urging Nancy Pelosi to investigate the 2020 Presidential Election. While this is a small gesture in that Pelosi will never go along with it, it sends a signal that Feenstra is listening to his constituents.

More than that, it shows that Feenstra is intent on representing his constituents.

Feenstra is right — we can all look forward to Jan. 6.

While it might irritate the Des Moines Register, Iowa Democrats and the GOP establishment in Iowa, Fourth District Iowans undoubtedly have serious reservations when it comes to the Presidential Election results.

Feenstra’s duty as an elected official is to represent his district. And trust me, his district isn’t buying for a second that Joe Biden collected more than 80 million votes and beat President Trump.

This is a promising start for Feenstra in Congress.
