Morgantown, WV (AP) -- Democratic Congressman Alan Mollohan is attracting a group of would-be GOP challengers.
Republicans Randy Scott Smith, Daniel Scott Swisher and Cindy Hall have filed pre-candidacy papers with the Secretary of State's Office to run against Mollohan for West Virginia's First Congressional District seat.
Smith is from Terra Alta and Hall is a resident of Wheeling.
Swisher lives in Burlington, Conn., but the Parkersburg native says he plans to move back to West Virginia.
Mollohan is a 14-term congressman and ran unopposed in 2008.
He handily defeated his last republican challenger, Chris Wakim in 2006.
