Congressman Chris Collins (R- NY) said earlier this week, after being indicted, he still plans to run for reelection.
Well, not anymore.
In a statement posted to Twitter this morning, Collins announced, “I have decided that it is in the best interests of the constituents of NY-27, the Republican Party and President Trump’s agenda for me to suspend my campaign for re-election to Congress.”

His statement, as you see above, starts out with warning about Democrats’ attempts to take back the House and start impeachment proceedings against Trump.
