Congressman Peter King is considering running for president in 2016. Late Wednesday and Thursday reports started popping up that the Republican from New York was considering a run for president. King joined Rita Cosby on WOR 710 Thursday and confirmed that the rumors are true.

Although King isn't officially announcing a run for president he did confirm on "The Rita Cosby Show" that a number of people within the Republican Party have approached him about running. King noted to Cosby that a big issue presented to him from fellow Republicans is the party's lack of a strong national defense position.
