Andrew "Andy" King (14 September 1948) is a British Labour Party politician. He was Member of Parliament for Rugby and Kenilworth until 2005, having first won the seat in the 1997 general election. He lost his parliamentary seat at the 2005 general election to the Conservative Party candidate, Jeremy Wright.

Following the 2005 election, Parliamentary constituency boundaries were redrawn, and Rugby became a seat in its own right. Academic research by election experts Lewis Baston and Simon Henig for The House Magazine suggests that Labour would have won the new Rugby seat in 2005. On 22 July 2007 Andy King was selected by the Rugby Constituency Labour Party as their prospective parliamentary candidate for the next general election.
