Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the powerful 14-term congressman who once chaired the House Committee on Homeland Security, announced Monday he will not seek reelection in 2020.

King, in a statement Monday, said his “prime reason” for retiring “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.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“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,” he said. “My daughter’s recent move to North Carolina certainly accelerated my thinking.”

    Another one bites the dust, how come there are no Democrats that are retiring when there are so many scumbags that should be?
    Something stinks, are these Republicans being bought off by Soros?
    There have been too many Republicans that are not seeking re-election to not realise that there is something wrong here.
    This is leaving the Republicans very weak and unfortunately doesn’t look good at all.

    Scary! But I’m going with he was sold out! We Americans who are for Trump need to hold it together and make sure we have a senate and congress that will help our President get this corruption out and our country back the way it used to be!
