14-term GOP Rep. Pete King declines reelection run

Rep. Pete King, a moderate New York Republican now in his 14th congressional term, will not run for reelection in the fall, he announced Monday.

King, while "in good health," decided with his wife that he'd like to spend more time with his children and grandchildren, he said in a statement. He went on to recount his "extraordinary experience" serving his Long Island district, namely his "efforts for 9/11 victims and their families" and "leading the successful effort to recover from Superstorm Sandy," among other things.
