Congressman Peter King ‘Serious’ About 2016 GOP Presidential Bid


peter-kingRep. Peter King, R-N.Y., says he is serious about a 2016 presidential run, amid an already deep field of potential candidates.

“This is not a game I’m playing. I’m serious,” King told The Hill newspaper after spending part of last week talking with residents in New Hampshire, the first-in-the-nation primary state in which campaigns are often either made or broken.

King, an 11-term House member, told The Hill he’s returning to New Hampshire in early September to further explore a run, but won’t make a decision until early 2015.

“I’m serious about looking at it, and we’ll see where it goes from there,” said King, who right now is a longshot candidate. “I have no intention of being there just for the sake of being there. So if I think there’s any real chance and support, then we’ll move forward.”
