President Pete King?

By Richard K. Barry

No, not this one.

Looks like Rep. Pete King (R-NY) is going to be running for the GOP nomination for the presidency in 2016, or so he says. According to the New York Daily News, commenting on his recent trip to New Hampshire:
King, making his second of four scheduled visits to the state in the summer and fall, told a New Hampshire radio station Friday that he’s there “because right now I'm running for President.”

Well, that's a pretty clear statement, and although King is by no means the best known of potential Republican contenders, he is, as of now, the first.

The Daily News also notes that King's lack of name recognition could be a problem as one local in New Hampshire commented that the only Pete King he knew was a football analyst.
