Kelly Will Not Run for Senate
“There are critical fights ahead which will require all of my energy and focus, In light of these considerations, I will be seeking a fifth term in the House of Representatives and will not be pursuing a run for the Senate next year,” Kelly said in a statement.
Kelly had been rumored to be considering a run for either Governor or Senate, but opted out of the Gubernatorial race earlier this year.
Kelly is in his fourth term in Congress, and currently sits on the powerful Ways and Means Committee.
The announcement comes on the heels of Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) telling GOP leaders he will run for the Senate next year.
