Rep. Ruben Kihuen’s (D) “congressional colleagues reacted with surprise and skepticism that he is considering reversing his decision not to seek re-election after being accused of sexual harassment, with one lawmaker asking what has changed.”

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D) “said of Kihuen’s waffling, ‘It’s news to me,’ adding that he has talked with” former Rep. Steven Horsford (D) as he “firms up his support among Democrats in Congress to replace Kihuen.”

“D. Taylor, who heads the Culinary’s parent union, responded with disbelief despite the organization’s 2016 backing for Kihuen. ‘I can’t imagine how he would even think about running again,’ Taylor said, adding Kihuen had approached union leaders about reconsidering his retirement.” (Nevada Independent)
