WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Reed is no longer serving as the co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus.
Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick of Bucks County, Pennsylvania has been elected to replace Reed as co-chair of the bipartisan caucus.
The caucus says Reed will remain an active member of the group and be part of a multi-month transition, helping ensure the Caucus continues its mission of bipartisan governing.
Reed announced last month that he will not seek re-election in 2022 after a former lobbyist accused him of sexual misconduct.
Nicolette Davis told The Washington Post that while in a Minneapolis bar Reed in 2017 he “briefly fumbled with her bra before unhooking it by pinching the clasp” and moving “his hand to her thigh.”
Last fall Reed was elected to his fourth term in Congress representing the 23rd Congressional District, receiving 57 percent of the vote over Democrat Tracy Mitrano in a rematch of their 2018 race.
