ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York Republican Congressman Tom Reed has been replaced in his role as co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus.
The group Wednesday announced that Republican Pennsylvania Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick was elected into the role.
Reed in March announced he would stick to his plan to not seek re-election for Congress, but added he would also not seek any elected office after a woman accused him of sexual misconduct. Reed apologized, taking full responsibility for his behavior.
Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) was elected the new Co-Chair of the bipartisan, 58-member-strong Problem Solvers Caucus. Tom Reed (R-NY) will remain an active member of PSC & be part of a multi-month transition, helping ensure the Caucus continues its mission of bipartisan governing.
The caucus says Reed will still remain an active member of the group.
