CHESHIRE - The sole survivor of the deadly Cheshire home invasion is reportedly running for the state House.

Multiple reports say Doctor William Petit has been nominated to run for the state's 22nd District, which represents Plainville and New Britain. 

Petit was severely beaten and his wife and two daughters were killed in 2007 by Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky.

Both men are appealing their convictions.

Petit is expected to make a formal announcement next week.
