BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) -- Joe Kennedy has won the Democratic primary over Gary Rucinski for the 4th House district, the AP reports.
Kennedy is in his third term. He delivered the Democratic response to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address in January.
Rucinski, a member of the group Citizens' Climate Lobby, was running to bring light to environmental issues. Although he said he was satisfied with Kennedy's performance in other areas, he found his attention to environmental issues to be lacking.
There are no Republicans running in the 4th Congressional District.
