Congressman Pete King Endorsed for Reelection by Teamsters Local 237

"During my time in Congress I have always worked with business and labor. As a strong supporter of hard-working men and women, I am proud to have been endorsed for reelection by Teamsters Local 237 and its President Greg Floyd. Local 237 is the largest local in the Teamsters 1.4 million member Union and President Floyd also serves as Vice President of the New York State AFL-CIO and the New York Central Labor Council. During the Local 237 meeting at the American Legion Hall in Brentwood, I emphasized my support for middle income Americans who are the backbone of our communities. And I particularly thanked Greg Floyd for his friendship and his advice and counsel. As a former member of the Brotherhood of Railway and Steamship Clerks, Freighthandlers and Station Employees, I have always respected and appreciated the importance of organized labor."

With all of the partisan political struggles that get media attention every day, it is important to remember that America and the world face constant critical and possibly existential threats.

Even more than Islamist terrorism, there is the severe threat of cyber attacks from Russia, Iran, China and international criminal enterprises. At the annual "Worldwide Threats" hearing, the leaders of America's Intelligence Community emphasized the necessity of protecting our critical defense, intelligence and industrial critical infrastructure from governmental and non-state hackers. As we saw in the 2016 elections there are the propaganda and surreptitious attacks on our democratic process.

Of course threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, a potential nuclear armed Iran, an expansion China and a resurgent Russia remain as do the ever deadly Islamist terrorist threats from ISIS, Al Qaeda and their offshoots and splinter groups.

We must face the reality that we live in an extremely dangerous world which is why it is vital that the Trump Administration continue to rebuild our military and we make sure that our intelligence agencies receive all the funding and all the moral support they need and deserve to protect Americans at home and American interests around the world. God Bless America!!
