Long Island representative Peter King has made it official.

He’s running for President.

King made the announcement on a New Hampshire radio show.

He told voters in that state to expect to see a lot more of him, “because right now I’m running for President.”

He’s the first republican to throw his hat into the ring for the 2016 election although senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are expected to run.

King says he is testing the waters and wants to distinguish himself from the other republicans.
