Reed to Run for Congress
GOP sources told PoliticsPA that Reed has been in contact with the county GOP chairs in the district ahead of an announcement in the near future.
“He has been strongly leaning towards entering the race. I would be excited for have him get in the race,” Indiana County GOP Chairman Jesse Daniel said.
PoliticsPA is seeking comment from Reed.
Reed is serving his second term as Majority leader, and his eighth in the state House.
The 9th Congressional district is being vacated by Shuster, who announced earlier this month he would not be seeking re-election.
It’s unclear if Reed will also circulate petitions for re-election to the State House.
