Reed eyes Shuster’s post

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s House Majority Leader Dave Reed says he’s considering running for Congress to succeed U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster.

Reed, an Indiana County Republican, said he’ll decide soon whether to run. Meanwhile, Republican state Sen. John H. Eichelberger Jr. of Blair County is declaring his candidacy for the office.

Also running for the Republican nomination are Art Halvorson and Travis Schooley, both of whom Shuster beat in 2016.

The 9th District includes all or parts of 12 counties.
