Rep. Peter King First Republican to Announce 2016 Presidential Run

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) became the first Republican to throw his hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential election. King announced his ‘long-shot’ candidacy Friday in New Hampshire, CBS News reports. He may be one of the longest serving congressmen, but that doesn’t mean he will be elected the next POTUS. You will recall Peter King has called for the racial profiling of Muslims and wants President Obama to invade Syria.
