Stephanie Miner reconsiders run for Congress against Rep. John Katko

Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner is reconsidering whether to challenge U.S. Rep. John Katko for Congress in 2018.

Miner, a Democrat, announced in October that she wouldn't run for Congress. But that was before the House voted on a tax reform proposal that has been panned by members of her party as a giveaway to wealthy individuals and corporations.

Katko, R-Camillus, was one of four New York Republicans who voted for the House tax bill earlier this month. The measure passed by a vote of 227 to 205.

After the vote, Miner said she was disappointed Katko supported the tax bill. On Wednesday, she said he and other New York GOP members "voted against the needs of their constituents."
