AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – As the Olympics approach, Sen. Angus King says he’s worried about safety.    The independent senator said Sunday that he wouldn’t be going to the games and doesn’t think he will send his family. King spoke about the Sochi Winter Games on CNN’s “State of the Union.” The games run from Feb. 7 to 23. Russian President Vladimir Putin says the country will do all it can to ensure a safe Olympics without imposing security measures that are too intrusive. Last month’s suicide bombings about 400 miles from the location of the Sochi Olympics have led to increased anxiety about the games’ safety.
