Rep. Peter King to exit Congress

Prominent U.S. Representative Peter King on Monday said he will not seek re-election in 2020 and will retire from Congress after his current term expires.

King is the the 20th House Republican to announce plans to leave Congress.

The New York Republican has represented part of Long Island's southern shore for 14 terms, and served on the House Homeland Security and Financial Services Committees.

In a Facebook post he said he wanted to spend more time with his family, and appeared to dismiss the notion that he could not win his seat for another term, saying: "my polling numbers are as strong as they have ever been and I have more than $1 million in campaign funds." Democrats took control of the House in January after sweeping victories in the November 2018 U.S. elections.

Since then a growing number of President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans have announced plans to leave the lower chamber after next year's election.

Eight Democrats have also announced plans not to seek re-election for their House seats.
