King grew up in Middletown Township, Bucks County, and still lives in the Langhorne section of the township. King graduated from Neshaminy High School and Millersville University, where he earned a degree in political science and economics. 
In 2002, King entered the race for state representative only three months before the general election, as a late replacement for the Democratic candidate who withdrew. Against incumbent Matt Wright, King took 41% of the vote in the loss.
After the 2002 election, King was appointed by Governor Ed Rendell to serve as a member of Rendell's Education Transition Team. He also worked as a budget and policy analyst for the Pennsylvania state government.
In 2006, King made a second run at the state house. In the primary election, he defeated Democrat Larry Lefkowitz with more than two-thirds of the total vote. This time, with many incumbents hobbled by the fallout of the 2005 legislative pay raise, King defeated Wright, taking 52.5% of the vote.
In 2008, he was defeated for re-election by Republican Frank Farry.
