Need new front derailleur

I have a 2008 Novarra Randonee which I got from REI. It has a shimano tiagra tripple front derailleur. It is worn out and I need a new one. I need the derailleur and not the crankset or brifters. I have installed new brifters already: Shimano 3x9 Soras. What is a good replacement front derailleur? I need something tough and not too expensive. It's okay if its heavy.

Thank you very much.

The Shimano Sora R3030 front derailleur should work fine.

IRD makes a great Randonneur front derailleur that gives you better and more useable front ring size options.
