DuWayne Gregory announces bid against Rep. Peter King

Suffolk Democrat DuWayne Gregory announced Wednesday that he is running against Republican United States Rep. Peter King.

Gregory, the presiding officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, wants to challenge King in New York's 2nd Congressional District in 2016.

King says he is looking forward to running on his record of achievement.

The 12-term incumbent won re-election last year with more than 68 percent of the vote, marking the biggest margin of victory by any local congressman.
