Download Audio

No matter what else happens in the midterm elections, Massachusetts will be getting a new representative in Congress, because current Rep. Niki Tsongas is not seeking re-election.

Her decision has created the most competitive and crowded congressional field in the state: 10 Democrats are in the race, running hard toward Election Day, which is Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Chris Lisinski from The Lowell Sun has been extensively covering the race and joined Morning Edition to discuss.

This segment aired on August 9, 2018.
