HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Two of Pennsylvania’s veteran congressmen have withstood election challenges from within their own parties.

Seven-term Republican Rep. Bill Shuster and 10-term Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle emerged as the winners in Tuesday’s primary election balloting.

Shuster faced two Republican challengers in the 9th District in south-central Pennsylvania: Art Halvorson, a retired Coast Guard captain who is now a commercial real-estate developer, and Army veteran Travis Schooley. The district includes Altoona, Chambersburg and Uniontown.

In the 14th District, which includes the city of Pittsburgh, Doyle faced a rematch against Janis Brooks, a pastor who heads a social-service agency. In the 2012 primary, Doyle defeated Brooks by a 4-1 margin.
