A Fremont Democrat is making a second run for the U.S. Senate.

Larry Marvin announced he is seeking his party's nomination in a press release that was issued Wednesday.

"The important of Larry's candidacy is that we have choice and competition," he said in the press release.

Marvin ran for Senate in 2008, finishing fourth in the Democratic primary with about 3 percent of the vote.

Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson is likely to seek re-election, but a final decision is not expected until later this year.

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, State Treasurer Don Stenberg and Schuyler investment adviser Pat Flynn are seeking the Republican nomination.

Marvin was born and raised in Nebraska and served in the U.S. Air Force. He said he is a property taxpayer in Brown, Cuming and Dodge counties.

He has been active in the Democratic party for more than 40 years.
