Representative , (R, Seaford), said he doesn't believe a potential Mitt Romney administration's stance on abortion will differ much from prior Republican administrations.
King said he wasn't concerned with the Republican stance on abortion.
"I'm pro-life and this is basically the platform we've had since Ronald Reagan won in 1980," he said.
When asked if he was concerned the platform doesn't exceptions in cases of rape, incest or when the mother's life is at risk, the congressman said he believes Romney's beliefs are in line with the last Republican president.
"Mitt Romney himself and George Bush before him all made the exceptions. I think the America people see that," he said, before blasting Democrats for harping too much on social issues.
"The more the Democrats focus on issues like that, the more you're going to see them run away from the economy," he said.
King will be running in the Second Congressional District.
In 2008 before district lines were redrawn, the District, which was represented by Representative Steve Israel, (D, Dix Hills), was carried by President Obama. But King thinks the has a fighting chance in 2012.
"I think we can do it," he said. "[Republican Vice Presidential nominee] Paul Ryan especially is going to resonate with middle-income families."
Acknowledging the presidential election "is going to be a tough competitive race" in his new District, King said Romney has some work cut out for him.
"It's up to him to really present himself to the American people," King said, adding "I feel very good because of President Obama. He's really lost a lot of support during the last four years."
Before , King was representing the Third Congressional District, which was carried by Republican John McCain in 2008 before redistrcting.
