Steve King Challenges Senators to a 'Duel'

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, has challenged three top Senate Democrats to a duel but "not like Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton," the lawmaker was quick to clarify.

Unlike the famous confrontation in 1804 wherein Burr, the sitting vice president, shot and killed the ex-Treasury secretary, King would prefer to sort out philosophical differences with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin and Charles E. Schumer "like many men do it today: Not duel with 50 paces and pistols, but ... with microphones within arm's reach."
