Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on
Congressman Pete King’s Retirement Announcement
November 11, 2019 … “The United States is a safer and stronger country thanks to the service of Congressman Peter King. His unmatched expertise in homeland security and counter-terrorism has been invaluable to New York and our entire nation. He always fought proudly and without equivocation for New Yorkers, leading and winning many important battles in Congress. We will be forever grateful for his tremendous advocacy on behalf of our first responders, not only in the aftermath of 9/11, but throughout his 28 years in Congress.
“It’s impossible to underestimate the void that his departure will leave in the People’s House, but we thank him for his lifetime of service to our country, our state and our Republican Party. We have every confidence we will retain this seat and continue the strong representation that Long Islanders deserve.”
