Rep. Reed addresses possible governor run in 2022

Around New York State

(WIVB)–Republican Congressman Tom Reed says he’s seriously considering a run for governor in 2022.

Reed sat down with our sister station in Rochester.

He suggested a possible run for governor earlier this month, as well.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has already announced plans to run for a fourth term.

Reed says he’s received support from more than just Republicans.

“This is something we’re seriously taking a look at. This started with some articles that were out there in the public domain some serious people who I respect greatly have reached out and said if you’re serious about this we’re definitely interested. And these aren’t just Republicans. These are Democrats and they’re concerned about one-party control in Albany dictating policies dictated by extremism,” Reed said.

Reed represents the Southern Tier in Congress.

He’s up for re-election this year.
