West Virginia Democratic Rep. Alan B. Mollohan, who was unopposed in his last re-election campaign, has drawn a 2010 challenge from a Republican state legislator.

Republican state Sen. Clark Barnes said over the weekend that he will run against Mollohan, who since 1983 has represented the state’s 1st District in and around Wheeling and Morgantown.

Barnes told The Wheeling Intelligencer newspaper that “we need to go back to traditionalism.”
