Summary

Fourteen-term New York Republican Representative Pete King won't seek reelection, he announced Monday in an early-morning Facebook post. King joins a growing number of Republicans and a handful of Democrats who plan to leave after next year. He cited his family as the reason for returning to Long Island full time."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 wrote. "This was not an easy decision."The Long Island representative was a Republican in a more moderate mold than many of his colleagues, the first Republican for instance, to sign onto an automatic weapons ban, which ultimately failed, earlier this year.
