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.

“Given an opportunity to do my part to serve and try to change the direction of the state, we are definitely looking at it,” Reed said.
