If he ultimately decides to run for president in 2016, Rep. Peter King will do it for one reason: to save the Republican party from the â€œisolationistâ€ policies of Sen. Rand Paul and others.
â€œIt bothers me when the leading Republicans out there â€” someone like Rand Paul seems more concerned about an American being killed in Starbucks by a CIA drone than he is about Islamic terrorism,â€ said Mr. King, New York Republican, during an interview on MSNBCâ€™s â€œMorning Joeâ€ program. â€œWe are the party of Eisenhower and Reagan, which believes in a strong national defense.
Iâ€™m willing to be out there and be a spokesman.â€
Mr. King said heâ€™s being encouraged to run for the Republican nomination for president because of his strong positions on national security.
While the race is still three years away, itâ€™s widely assumed that Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Sen. Ted Cruz also will seek the GOP nomination, and Mr. King believes the two freshman senators simply donâ€™t represent true Republican views on national defense and security, Mr. King said.
