Political action among Democrats and Republicans looks to be stirring on the South Shore of Long Island. 2018 Democratic nominee Liuba Grechen Shirley, who lost to Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford/Babylon), 52-46%, is reportedly considering running again next year.
But, rumors are beginning to surface that suggest Rep. King, who will be 76 years old before the next election, is considering retirement from Congress. If so, a prime candidate to replace him would be his daughter, Hempstead Town Councilmember Erin King Sweeney (R). As an open seat, the 2nd District would become highly competitive.
