Matt Doheny on Wednesday announced he has filed paper work with the Federal Election Commission to seek the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh.

"While my campaign may technically start today, I've been out listening to residents all over northern and central New York since last November," Doheny said in a press release.

Doheny, of Watertown, narrowly lost the 2010 congressional race to Owens

Doheny is a former lawyer turned investor who last year founded North Country Capital, an investment firm focussed on regional start-up companies. He also teaches a finance class at Clarkson University.

Doheny is expected to attend the Warren County Republican Committee clam bake on Thursday, at the invitation of county Republican Chairman Michael Grasso, said Jude Seymour, a campaign spokesman.

Warren County is outside the 23rd Congressional District, but is a contiguous county that could be affected with redrawing of congressional district boundaries.
