Former three-term New York Congressman Chris Gibson, who explored a 2018 campaign for governor, says he won’t be a candidate for any office in the 2020 election. The Republican who retired from the House in 2016 spoke to WAMC News Monday after announcing he will teach at Siena College as a visiting professor starting next fall. Gibson, who has held a similar position at Williams College, discussed his classes, his faith and returning to his alma mater.
