It looks like we have our first candidate in the big elephant race. Congressman Peter King (R-Archie Bunkerville) told a New Hampshire radio station he is running for President.
Of course King has no chance of winning. He is a Northeastern Congressman who has good relations with labor unions. Yeah, that sounds like what today’s GOP wants.

In particular, he wants to stand up an interventionist foreign policy in the face of a growing push for non-interventionism (what some call isolationism). While he won’t win anything King was try to use the debates to bloody up contenders like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, who seem to be leading the isolationism charge.
