Eight Western New York Republican chairmen gathered in Batavia Tuesday night to discuss their party’s options after Congressman Chris Collins announced last weekend he would not seek re-election. Last week, Congressman Tom Reed said it should be up to the voters in the 27th Congressional District to see if Collins should continue on to represent them. He was asked about Collins making the decision himself to not run.
Of the candidates that have emerged, does Congressman Reed have a favorite that he would like to see run this fall?
The Republican chairs say they will meet again next week.
