Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) said he’d “want to see where the court case stands” before deciding on a reelection bid, referring to his indictment on insider trading charges.
“There was a trial date set for February,” he said, according to the Daily News. “I’m not sure whether that’s going to be adhered to or not.”
“There’s some things up in the air. We’ll have to see where that stands, what the timing of that is,” he added. “At some point, you sit down with your family and say, ‘Do I want to stay in the public’s eye and do this again or not?’”
Collins was indicted in August on charges that he used insider information about a biotech company to trade stocks.
