Former Congressman Mark Critz filed paperwork to run for lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, his campaign said Monday.

Critz, 51, a Democrat from Johnstown, said last month he intended to seek Pennsylvania's second-highest office.

Critz served as an aide to the late U.S. Rep. John Murtha, then succeeded his former boss in a 2010 special election. Critz lost a re-election bid last year in the reconfigured 12th congressional district to Sewickley Republican Keith Rothfus.
