With Hillary leaving the Senate and a replacement soon to be named, there is always the question of who will be running in 2010. With Caroline Kennedy likely to be named, there is already opposition for the seat.
Republican Peter King from Long Island has placed his hat in the ring. King is very strong on national security and is a bright, responsive politician. New York would be lucky to have him as our Senator.
"Obviously it would be a challenge to run against Caroline Kennedy. She has the name identification and for all I know she's a wonderful person. But this is not an anti-Kennedy campaign," he said. "Nothing in life is easy. If anything, that makes the adrenaline pump a little harder."
Good for Pete King. I think I might just vote for him.
