Republican Chris Sander, a mortgage company executive, has filed papers with the FEC to prepare a campaign for the seat held by two-term Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan.

Carnahan, a son of the late Gov. Mel Carnahan and former Sen. Jean Carnahan, was first elected in 2004 to succeed Democrat Richard A. Gephardt, who that year made a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination that was unsuccessful. Russ Carnahan won 65 percent of the vote in 2006.
