Peter King announces he won't run again

Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), a 14-term congressman and former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, says he is retiring, becoming the 20th House Republican to decline to seek reelection next year.

In a Facebook post Monday, King, 75, one of the more moderate members of the GOP caucus, said he made the decision after “much discussion” with his wife and children.

“The prime reason for my decision was 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,” King said in a statement. “This was not an easy decision.”
