U.S. Rep. Jim Langevin is set to officially launch his re-election campaign for Congress.
The Rhode Island Democrat is scheduled to file his Declaration of Candidacy on Tuesday at the Rhode Island Secretary of State Elections Division in Providence.
Langevin is pursuing a ninth term. He was first elected to Congress in 2000. He currently serves as a senior member of both the House Armed Services and Homeland Security committees.
A press release says the Rhode Island Democratic Party State Committee, the Rhode Island Association of Democratic City and Town Chairs and the AFL-CIO have endorsed Langevin in the 2016 election.
