A congresswoman representing most of the Tri-Counties says she will seek re-election.
Officials with Lois Capps confirm the 24th District Congresswoman will seek a ninth term in office.
Capps first won election in 1998.
The Democrat is known for her strong interest in environmental, and health care issues.
The filing deadline isn’t until February 20th, but so far, she’s being challenged by Democrat Paul Coyne, and Republicans Dale Francisco, Justin Fareed, and Chris Mitchum.
The 24th District includes all of San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara Counties, and much of Western Ventura County.
