CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - A "Saturday Night Live" alum and Cedar Falls resident has officially announced his candidacy for United States House.

Gary Kroeger made the announcement Monday evening at the Oster Regent Theatre. He also announced his campaign chair would be Tavis Hall.

Kroeger has been mulling a run for the seat newly-held by Rep. Rod Blum for weeks. His Facebook page, "Kroeger for Congress," began March 21 and notes Kroeger will run as a "progressive Democrat."

Kroeger joins Monica Vernon and Ravi Patel, both of Cedar Rapids, as official Democratic challengers to Blum in 2016.
