Longtime Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection next year.
King said in a statement on Facebook that after 28 years of spending 4 days a week in Washington, D.C., it is time to end the weekly commute and be home in Seaford."
"This was not an easy decision. But there is a season for everything and Rosemary and I decided that, especially since we are both in good health, it is time to have the flexibility to spend more time with our children and grandchildren," King said.
"My daughters recent move to North Carolina certainly accelerated my thinking," he added. His daughter, former Hempstead Councilwoman Erin King Sweeney, resigned from office earlier this year from office and was replaced by another Republican in last weeks election.

the guys a RINO anyway
It’s a good thing they come with a D or an R to better help recognize them.
Draining the Swamp?
Almost 100% that the Democrats will take the seat.
Her, it’s almost as if they are trying to give the House away, and/or get out before their own crimes are discovered.
The guy is 75. He needs to go home and enjoy himself and his family.
Yeah. Hes one we can afford to lose.
Hope we can keep the seat. He won 53 percent his last election. Can a conservative win there? Even RINOs would have stopped the nonsense going on in the house right now. Majority with RINOs is better then minority without.
We hear from him via the media because he is not a real republican conservative.
The 2nd District of NY is an R+3. It voted 53-44 for Trump. Why is it 100% that a Dem will replace King?
Paul Ryan threw the GOP House in 2018. Now the GOP is retreating and making it much more likely that the Commie Rats hold the House and take the Senate in 2020.
Swamp being drained!
Because the NY GOP is more useless than Mitt Romney.
His kids are leaving the state...wonder why
If conservatives would find DINOs to run in ‘Rat primaries, a ‘Rat pickup wouldn’t be so bad.
“The 2nd District of NY is an R+3. It voted 53-44 for Trump. Why is it 100% that a Dem will replace King?”
Of course it’s not. This is yet more blather from the perennial gloom and doom nervous nellie bed wetters on this forum.
Most people voting for Trump will vote straight GOP after watching Liddle Adam Schiff.
He must have a deep Ukraine connection after 28 years.
I'm willing to bet that every Trump voter in that district has already done the same thing since 2016, or is planning to do it as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
