**Bulletin -- Reed calls for GOP to "unify" behind Trump...

Local Congressman Tom Reed is throwing his support behind the man who he believe's "will be our nominee."  In what's been a bizarre Presidential campaign, the Corning Republican's campaign late yesterday e-mailed a press release in which Reed called on the GOP to -- quote -- "unite behind the candidacy of Donald Trump for President."  He says it's become "clear more Republicans favor Donald Trump than any other candidate."  Reed added that the country "cannot have someone in the White House that will continue the failed foreign policy and economic agenda of Barack Obama."  Reed... who earlier was critical of Trump's rhetoric... and, the violence that's popped up on the campaign trail... adds that -- quote -- "we must move beyond the bombastic rhetoric to positive discussion about creating jobs and improving the lives of all Americans - we all care about improving people's lives - that should always be our focus.  I will use my voice to influence all Republican candidates at all levels to focus on issues and positive solutions for all Americans."  Reed had supported former Florida Governor Jeb Bush until Bush recently suspended his campaign.
