ELMIRA (WENY) -- At today's event, Reed says he plans to push proposals that empower individuals instead of insurance companies.
He also says he will fight to bring jobs back to the State of New York.
Democrat Martha Robertson is also running for the 23rd district seat.
If Reed wins this November, it will be his third term as a representative.
The Congressman is setting his focus on manufacturing.
"Co-chair of the US manufacturing caucus, the natural gas caucus, I think there's huge opportunity when we talk about jobs along those lines, says Reed. "I want to be a voice and a proponent of where we build those products for generations to come."
Reed says he plans to continue a strong relationship with local officials here in the Southern Tier.
The election is November 4.
