Crunch time for GOP to find replacement for Congressman Chris Collins

09.12.18 | Brandon Dickson

Erie County's Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy says he has confidence that his colleagues and attorneys will "make this substitution happen."

The deadline for Langworthy to make a decision is September 19th.

Meanwhile, opposing the GOP candidate for that seat will be Democrat Nate McMurray who says not knowing who he's running against is tough.

Collins, who McMurray was originally going to be running against, dropped his re-election bid after he was indicted on charges of insider trading and lying to the FBI.
