Rep. Lee Terry has officially filed for re-election, according to a statement issued Saturday.
Terry, who represents Nebraska's second district, is seeking his ninth term in office.
"The footprint of government is invading every part of our lives, and there couldn't be a more important time for our community to have a voice in Washington fighting against the expansion of government and fighting for the priorities that can make a real-life difference in our day-to-day lives," Terry said in the statement.
"Now more than ever, we need real-time transparency in government so that we can hold Washington accountable, particularly with the debacle that has been the president's healthcare plan.
"I am going to continue this fight, our fight, and it's my hope that this community will continue to stand with me."
Terry has yet to draw a Democratic opponent, but Republican businessman Dan Frei is running against Terry in the May 13 primary.
Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told The World-Herald this week he hopes a candidate will step forward for his party and run against Terry.
"We're looking at lots of options right now," Israel said.
According to his latest campaign finance report, Terry ended 2013 with $818,000 in the bank. Terry had $435,000 in the bank at the same point in his 2012 race.
