SALEM, Mass. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton is kicking off his re-election campaign.

The Salem Democrat will gather with supporters during a campaign event Tuesday in Salem to announce that he’s pursuing a second term.

The Iraq war veteran upset former nine-term Democratic Congressman John Tierney in the Democratic primary in 2014. He went on to win the 6th District seat by defeating Republican Richard Tisei in the general election.

Moulton serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Committee on Small Businesses, the House Committee on Budget and several subcommittees.

He is also a prolific fundraiser, having raised more than $1.4 million in 2015.

Moulton recently invited a 9-year-old Syrian refugee as his guest at President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address.
