DOVER, N.H. - The next presidential election is three years away, but a Long Island politician's name has been dropped as a potential candidate.
News 12 Long Island's Doug Geed traveled with Rep. Peter King, a Republican from Seaford, on a recent out-of-state trip where he is exploring a possible White House run.
King traveled to New Hampshire, a state where presidential campaigns are often launched and sometimes derailed. While there, King took jabs at the Obama administration but stopped short of confirming his own presidential run.
