Depending on how things shape out, it appears a rematch will be order in next year's local race for Congress. Republican businessman Matt Doheny has made his candidacy for the seat in the 23rd Congressional District official, filing paperwork with the FEC. He has cited jobs and the economy as the top issues for him. Doheny lost the race last year to Democratic incumbent Bill Owens. That race saw three candidates on the ballot with Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman garnering about 9 thousand votes on election night, even though he had ended his campaign weeks before the election. It's now a wait and see if another Republican will challenge Doheny for the nomination. Also a wild card is redistricting and what the Congressional map will look like for next year's election.
