When Representative Peter King was first elected to the House of Representatives back in 1992, he ensured it would remain in Republican hands all the way through last year’s announcement that he was retiring from Congress after wrapping up his 14th term. His seat in New York’s 2nd congressional district stretches in the west from Levittown and wends east through North Wantagh, Seaford, South Farmingdale and Massapequa right into a number of Suffolk County communities including Amityville, Copiague, Lindenhurst, Brentwood, Babylon, Oakdale and Ronkonkoma. In the upcoming Republican primary, Sayville resident Andrew Garbarino, who was tapped to run by Long Island Republican leaders, is squaring off against Massapequa’s Mike LiPetri. Garbarino has been a four-term assemblyman since 2013. LiPetri is a fellow legislator coming off of serving his first term. New York State’s primary election will be held on June 23.
