Missouri Democrat Tommy Sowers, an educator and Army veteran, is challenging Republican Rep. Jo Ann Emerson in the 2010 election.

Sowers said Wednesday that he has filed candidacy papers with the Federal Election Commission to organize a campaign in Missouri’s 8th, a conservative-leaning area in the state’s southeast that Emerson has represented for 13 years.
