Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) is running for president.
In a radio interview this week, the Republican lawmaker told a New Hampshire station that he was in the state “because right now I’m running for president,” according to The New York Daily News.
The visit was King’s second of four trips to the traditional home of the nation’s first presidential primary.
The announcement makes King the first Republican to officially declare their intentions to run for president in 2016.
