ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — With Rep. Chris Collins' resignation and expected guilty plea, the question becomes: What will happen to the seat he held in Congress?
Much of if and when a special election will take place for the seat resides with Governor Andrew Cuomo.
After the death of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter in March 2018, a primary election was called, and then Governor Cuomo called a special election in November with a vote to fill the remainder of Slaughter's term and a vote to fill the seat for the next term.
There has been no word yet from Gov. Cuomo on how filling Collins' seat will be handled.
