Why it matters: Pappas emerged from a crowded field of 11 Democratic candidates, including Levi Sanders, the son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) He will face off with a Republican in November in a district that narrowly voted for President Trump in 2016. Shea-Porter won it by just one point in the last election. The swing district has flipped back and forth between Democrat and Republican representatives since 2011.
