Former US Rep. Chris Carney (D), who represented northeastern Pennsylvania for two terms before losing a 2010 campaign to current incumbent Tom Marino (R-Williamsport), is contemplating another run for the House next year.

The 10th District is solidly Republican, so his chances of unseating Mr. Marino, even if 2018 yields a strong Democratic year, are not particularly good.

Marino is expected to seek re-election.
