All five incumbents in contested Congressional races in Massachusetts have been re-elected, according to Associated Press projections.

  • Richard Neal, whose district covers much of the western part of the state, beat his independent and Libertarian challengers.
  • Niki Tsongas, whose district includes Lowell and Lawrence, overcame Republican candidate Ann Woffard.
  • Joseph Kennedy III, whose district stretches from Brookline and Newton south to Fall River and Taunton, beat Republican challenger Dave Rosa.
  • Stephen Lynch, whose district encompasses a swath of Boston's South Shore, beat Republican candidate Bill Burke.
  • Bill Keating, who represents Cape Cod, the Islands and parts of the south coast, beat a group of four candidates vying for his seat.

The other four members of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts did not face opposition.
