Press Release

PATCHOGUE, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) just issued the following statement after Congressman Peter King (R, NY-2) announced he would not seek reelection in 2020:

“For 14 terms, Congressman King has served his country and community in Congress, protecting our national security, including his time as Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, and securing massive victories on behalf of New Yorkers, including the Zadroga Act, 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, and SuperStorm Sandy recovery funds. While his tenacity and unwavering commitment to his constituents will be sorely missed, his legacy will have an enduring impact on all those he so faithfully served. I wish him and his family all the best as they embark on this new chapter.”
