MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum has defeated two challengers from within her party on her way to Minnesota’s fall ballot.

McCollum is already the longest-serving woman ever in Minnesota’s congressional delegation as she tries for a seventh two-year term. On Tuesday, she beat attorney Diana Longrie and software engineer Brian Stalboerger.

Republicans had their own primary to determine who would move on to November.

The third candidate this fall will be Steve Carlson of the Independence Party.

The heavily Democratic district runs from St. Paul east to the Wisconsin border.
