Collin indicted for insider trading

Congressman Chris Collins has kept a low profile since he was indicted on charges of insider trading. While silence may be a preferred legal strategy, it's not the standard approach for a congressman seeking reelection. Buffalo News Political Reporter Bob McCarthy was able to make contact last week and sought answers on a number of issues.  Collins said he decided to stay in the race because he didn't believe he could get his name off the ballot, but McCarthy says Republican Party officials are refuting that claim.
