GOP members of Congress announce their retirements from the House early and often (Pete King edition)

Say goodbye to Pete King, 75, calling it quits after 28 years in the House.

Reported in Rep. Peter T. King, a 14-term Republican congressman from New York, announces retirement.  (Washington Post, 11/11/2019)

That would be his lowest margin of victory (6.2 percentage points) since his 1992 election (2.7 percentage points).  King received less than 53% of the vote in 1992, 1994, 1996, 2000, 2006, and 2012.
