This November, voters in Massachusetts' 3rd district will choose a new member of Congress.

It's a sprawling district represented by retiring Rep. Niki Tsongas for more than a decade. Earlier this week we heard from Rick Green, the Republican seeking that seat. On Wednesday, we turn to the Democratic nominee, Lori Trahan.

Trahan faced a tough primary, coming out ahead of nine other candidates, and after a recount it was determined that she won by less than 150 votes.
