Seth Moulton is no stranger to difficult tasks. He has three degrees from Harvard and survived four tours of duty in Iraq with the U.S. Marine Corps.

Moulton is running in the state's sixth congressional district against incumbent John Tierney, with Republican Richard Tisei in the hunt as well.

Political observers regard Tierney as one of the House's most vulnerable members. But Seth Moulton is trying to do what no one in Massachusetts has done in more than two decades: unseat a sitting congressman from his own party.
