It appears anti-Washington sentiment has led to a potentially record-breaking year for congressional challengers in the upcoming mid-term elections, according to the Federal Election Commission.

More than 2,300 people have announced that they are running for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Commission officials said that's the highest number of candidates the country has seen in 35 years.

Conservatives' frustration with President Obama's Democratic agenda in particular appears to have played a role in the surge.

The field has almost twice as many GOP candidates as Democrats, and also has several hundred Independent and third-party challengers.
