Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Alan Mollohan, facing a stiff republican challenge for his 1st district seat in Congress, has made his re-election plans official.

Mollohan filed paperwork Monday with the West Virginia Secretary of State's office to officially begin his re-election bid.

Currently in his 14th term in Congress, Mollohan faces a republican party energized by what it hopes is national dissatisfaction with democrats.

Republicans David McKinley and Mac Warner have already filed the paperwork necessary to launch their campaigns for the seat.

It's a sharp contrast to the situation two years ago, when Mollohan ran unopposed.

He's the first of West Virginia's three house incumbents to file re-election campaign paperwork.
