When the Republican-led General Assembly finished redrawing its congressional maps in November, it made Democratic U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath’s 6th Congressional District much more conservative while turning U.S. Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux’s 7th Congressional District into far more friendly territory for Democrats.

McBath chose to run against Bourdeaux in the Democratic primary in the new 7th District, setting up a congresswoman-vs.-congresswoman race. McBath won the election and is likely to fill to seat in January.

Mark Gonsalves won a June 21 runoff for the Republican nomination.
