N.Y. Rep. Peter King considers White House run

July 19, 2013

New York Republican Rep. Peter King is weighing a run for the White House, according to reports.

“I’m going to certainly give it thought. I’m going to see where it goes,” King said Thursday to ABC News. “My concern right now is I don’t see anyone at the national level speaking enough on, to me, what’s important — national security, homeland security, counterterrorism.”

King praised New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, both considered potential 2016 GOP candidates, but was less positive about Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, who also might run.

“I would hope that our party is not defined by Rand Paul and Ted Cruz,” King said. “I’m not crazy about Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. But on the other hand, you know, guys like Chris Christie and Jeb Bush, I have a lot of regard for.”

King said his focus would be on foreign policy but that he wanted the debate to go beyond whether the “CIA was going to use a drone to kill an American in Starbucks.”
