Rep. Peter King will not run against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand - or seek anything other than the seat he currently holds - in 2010.

The lone Republican congressman on Long Island insists he reached this decision "after months of deliberation and conversations with family members and friends and advisors."

He wrote: "The reality is that a statewide Democratic candidate starts the race with a voter registration edge of almost 3 million. To overcome such a large margin, there would have to be intensive media coverage of the race and I would need to raise at least $30 million."
