Candidates for Rep. Chris Collins’ spot on ballot to be interviewed today

Local News

Nearly a dozen candidates vying to replace indicted Congressman Chris Collins on the November ballot are expected to be in Batavia Tuesday to speak with GOP leaders from across the district. 

Collins announced he will not be seeking re-election for the 27th District seat two weeks ago, days after pleading not guilty to federal charges of insider trading and lying to the FBI. 

Whoever is chosen by GOP leaders will face off against Democrat Nate McMurray.
