Rep. Chris Collins’ (R-N.Y.) decision to remain on the ballot this fall despite his indictment on insider trading charges is drawing fire from Republicans, who believe it could put a safe seat at risk in a cycle where the GOP House majority is in jeopardy.

Even if Collins does win his Buffalo-area district, Republicans worry that having him on the ballot will tar the party as a whole, inviting accusations that the GOP is governing over a culture of corruption.

The article goes on to state the following:

Republican lawmakers haven’t been publicly criticizing Collins for his decision Wednesday to reverse course and announce he would fight to keep his seat.

But some GOP strategists have been unsparing with their criticism.

Collins’ decision was “selfish and cavalier,” said Republican Matt Mackowiak.

“It is unhelpful, but it is his decision to make,” he said. “The only way it is a good decision is if two things are highly likely to happen: complete exoneration and his own reelection.”
