Rep. Reed Not Ruling Out 2022 Campaign for NY Governor


Republican Congressman Tom Reed, of Corning, is contemplating a run for New York governor. Reed represents the 22nd District, whose includes areas in Tioga, Chemung and Tompkins counties, as well as areas in the Finger Lakes and Western New York.

The Buffalo News reports that during a recent interview, Reed didn’t rule out the possibility that he may challenge Democrat Andrew Cuomo in 2022.

Reed has certainly been ramping up his attacks on Cuomo. For now, the GOP lawmaker is preparing for re-election to congress next year. However, according
The Buffalo News, Reed said when he was first elected in 2010, he would not seek more than six terms…that’s twelve years.

State Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy told the newspaper “it would be intriguing to consider Tom for statewide office.”
