New York Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul says she is staying in her current job, even though some have called for her to run for the Western New York Congressional seat that’s vacant, due to the resignation of Chris Collins.

Collins, a Republican, pleaded guilty to federal charges related to insider trading. Hochul, a Democrat, spoke with Capitol Correspondent Karen DeWitt. 

Karen DeWitt is Capitol Bureau chief for New York State Public Radio, a network of public radio stations in New York state. She has covered state government and politics for the network since 1990.
