Rep. Tom Reed out as co-chair of Problem Solvers Caucus

There’s new leadership in the Problem Solvers Caucus.

Congressman Tom Reed has been replaced as co-chair of the caucus, which includes Democrats and Republicans.

Reed said in March that he would not seek re-election, and would also not run for governor in New York after a woman accused him of sexual misconduct.

Rep. Reed apologized, but did not resign from his post.

Republican Brian Fitzpatrick, who represents a district in Pennsylvania will fill the Republican leadership spot on the Caucus.

Reed says he will stay actively involved.
