SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner says she will not run for Congress next year.

The Democrat had been mentioned as a potential challenger to Republican Rep. John Katko, who represents the Syracuse area.

In a statement released Thursday, Miner said she decided not to run "after much thoughtful consideration and conversations with my family."

Miner also has been mentioned as a potential primary challenger to Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2018.

Miner is term-limited out of office at the end of this year. The two-term mayor was first elected in 2009.
