King of the Senate?

GOP Rep. Peter King is reconsidering a run against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in New York. He cites money and his top spot on the Homeland Security Committee (if the GOP picks up the House, he would become its chair) as possible concerns.

To be honest, the GOP needs King or someone who can raise money if they want this seat. Gillibrand is not popular (SurveyUSA had her below 40 percent) but she has the advantage in a Democratic state, even with a potential GOP tide.

If Republicans want King to run, they might want to indicate their support, as did former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani did when he decided to forgo public office this year.
