The Flyer has learned that Lee Harris, the law professor and state Senate minority leader who had floated a trial balloon about running for Congress against 9th District U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, has changed his mind and has so informed Cohen.

Efforts to reach Harris for confirmation have not yet succeeded, but Cohen, who said he would defer to Harris concerning any statement on the matter, acknowledged having received a message from Harris.

More information as it is received.
