For years, Rep. Steve King of Iowa and Bob Vander Plaats, an influential Christian conservative, have fought on the same side of the culture wars, attending the same summits and bus tours to attack Republican boogeymen like Planned Parenthood and the Affordable Care Act. In 2016, they teamed up to co-chair the presidential campaign of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who won the Iowa caucuses after securing their support.
