Long Island congressman Peter King was the most prominent activist Irish American Congressional Republican politician at the just concluded GOP convention in Cleveland. Come to think of it, he was the only one. [ ]
And while King is lining up behind the Trump candidacy, and has endorsed him, it should be remembered that back in the thick of the primary fight he endorsed Floridas Senator Marco Rubio over his fellow New Yorker.
But that was then and this is now.
King sent this from the convention floor on Tuesday evening: Dramatic night as Donald Trump goes over the top to receive the Republican Presidential nomination on the first ballot. I have had differences with Donald Trump on several issues but I have endorsed him not only because he won 37 states and the overwhelming majority of delegate votes, but because I agree with him on key issues such as: national defense, homeland security, Supreme Court appointments and support for our police. Most importantly, Donald Trump will provide leadership to America after the failed administration of President Obama.

Let folks endorse who they will in the primary. now is the time to beat the Crooked Beast
Things have to heat up in that direction, and quickly.
Yes.Time is running out. After the Dem convention, it will be a matter of running out the clock. Who will have an uptick momentum at just the right time? I want Donald to leave the competition in the dust, so that cheating won’t be so very easy.
most of the time i want to smack Peter King.
this time he is correct.
We all know the saying about broken clocks, of course.
Crazy Irishman :)
He actually came through. Good for him.
It was Actually CRUZ that he hated!!!
Hey, he was right.
i am no fan of King
but at least he wants to defeat Hilliary
the ones who don’t (like Cruz, Bush, etc.) at least have OUTTED themselves and we can work to keep them OUT of office from now on!
Trump was not my candidate but he won ... got more votes than any other R ..... so..... GO TRUMP! Defeat Hilliary!
and the socalled Republicans that are trying to undermine the R candidate can GTH!
Only the strange refrained, all the rest are on board the Trump train.
Amazing how this worked out to King’s favor. Not that long ago, his antics against Cruz had the constituency outraged and protesting in front of his Massapequa office.
It’s the luck of the Irish because it’s INCREDIBLE how fast he went from public enemy to one of the Trumpeteers :)
I will walk barefoot over rough gravel to the polls in
November to vote for DONALD J. TRUMP for President of the
What’s with the Irish American crap? That nonsense is reserved for the lefties. Oh wait, Peter King is one.
I can’t stand Peter King, but at least he is getting on board.
More than I can say for Yeb!, Kaysuck, Cruz, etc.
I’d be wary of the establishment guys if I were in Trump’s shoes, even if they are from NY too.
Absolutely. I trust just one Senator, Jeff Sessions.
One Congressman, Dave Brat (proud to have elected him)
The rest are anywhere from questionable to treasonous.
The only thing I can think of right now is Proverbs 27:6.
