Congressman Pete King Endorsed By Major Law Enforcement Organizations

I am proud to have been endorsed by virtually every major law enforcement organization in the 2nd Congressional District and New York City. The groups endorsing me from Nassau County include the Nassau County PBA, the Superior Officers Association, the Detectives' Association and the Court Officers Benevolent Association. In Suffolk County, I have been endorsed by the Coalition of Suffolk Police Unions consisting of the Suffolk County PBA, the Detective Investigators, the Detectives Association, the Police Conference and the Superior Officers Association. I also received the strong endorsement of the Suffolk County Correction Officers Association. In New York City, I was endorsed by the NYPD's PBA and the Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains Benevolent Associations. These endorsements mean a great deal to me. Even though they are constantly attacked by special interests and their allies in politics and the media, the men and women of law enforcement continue put their lives on the line every day to protect all of us. Throughout my years in Congress I have always stood with the police. And I always will. We cannot allow critics who have never walked in a cop's shoes to take cheap shots from the sidelines and second guess split second, life and death decisions. I thank the police, the corrections officers and the court officers for having faith in me. I won't let them down.

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!!
