Republican Rep. Tom Reed of New York says that he’s “definitely looking” at running next year against Gov. Andrew Cuomo when the embattled three-term Democratic governor bids for re-election.

“People across the district, across the state, are saying ‘you need to take a look at this.’ I’m humbled by that, but I’m also energized by it,” the six-term congressman, who represents the southwestern corner of New York State, said in an interview with Fox News.
