Nevada Democratic Rep. Ruben Kihuen declined to answer questions Wednesday morning about whether he will run for re-election.

“We’re going to be making another statement here in the next few days,” Kihuen told Roll Call as he walked to the Capitol.

 

Kihuen faces allegations of sexual harassment from a former campaign staffer. Top leaders including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján have called for his resignation. Kihuen told ABC News Tuesday he is not resigning.
