The Catskill Region’s Congressional representative announced Tuesday that he will not seek another term, but may run for an unspecified state office in 2018.
Chris Gibson, a three-term Republican who handily defeated Democratic challenger Sean Eldridge just two months ago, sent out a prepared statement citing self imposed term limits as his reason for retiring.
Regardless, mainstream media is already alive with speculation that Gibson will make a run at higher office. United States Senator Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, is up for re-election in 2016.
