Lt Gov Kathy Hochul Says She Will Not Try To Win Back Her Old Seat In Congress

07.10.19 | Brandon Dickson

Hochul says she won't run for conservative Congressman Chris Collins' spot in the House.

She served part of one term in the 27th district before losing to Collins in 2012.

This, as a group of western New York Republicans is courting Medal of Honor recipient David Bellavia to run for congress. The Iraq War veteran also ran in 2012 and lost to Collins in the Republican primary.

Collins is facing money laundering charges, but has not said yet whether he'll seek re-election next year.
