Congressman Tom Reed announced Wednesday he’s backing Donald Trump for President. Reed represents the southern tier. He was backing republican Jeb Bush before Bush dropped out of the race. In a statement Reed said, “As the people vote, it has become clear more republicans favor Donald Trump than any other candidate.” “Now is the time to unite behind the candidate who I believe will be our nominee, Donald Trump.” Reed becomes the second local congressman to endorse Trump. Representative Chris Collins is also supporting Trump.
