Newsmax's Dream Comes True As Peter King Calls Himself A Presidential Candidate
Topic: Newsmax

Greg Richter sounds very pleased and almost giddy in a Sept. 8 Newsmax article:

The first presidential candidate for 2016 has announced his run: Republican Rep. Peter King of New York.

King told a New Hampshire radio station that he was visiting the state last week "because right now I'm running for president." It was King's second of four scheduled visits to the state this year, the New York Daily News reports.

King earlier this year hinted at running, but the radio admission not only seemingly makes it official, it would also make King the first member of either party to official throw a hat in the ring.

Richter, however, didn't note one major conflict of interest: His boss, Christopher Ruddy, is the one who put the bug in King's ear about furthering his presidential ambitions.

It would seem important to not that King is Newsmax's candidate (du jour, anyway, depending on what longtime Newsmax presidential paramour Donald Trump decides), but apparently Richter disagrees.
