CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) - Northwestern Indiana voters will have a familiar-looking race for Congress in the November election.

Democratic Rep. Pete Visclosky and Republican Mark Leyva of Highland were both unopposed for their party nominations in Tuesday’s primary.

Visclosky is seeking his 16th term representing the heavily Democratic 1st Congressional District. He’s faced Leyva in five elections since 2002. Visclosky has won handily each time, including with about 60 percent of the vote in the 2010 election.

Visclosky is currently Indiana’s longest-serving congressman.
