BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland's eight members of Congress have all been nominated to serve new terms.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen was one of the eight members of Congress from Maryland who nominated to serve new terms Tuesday.

Five of the state's seven House Democrats and its lone Republican had challengers in Tuesday's primary, but most of them were little-known and poorly funded.

Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards, who represents the 4th District, says the strength of the state's incumbents is a credit to Maryland voters and their shared values.

Maryland Republicans are only targeting one seat in the fall: the 6th District seat occupied by Rep. John Delaney. Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino will challenge Delaney. Bongino has raised more than $500,000 for his campaign. However, he would likely have to garner some Democratic support in the redrawn western Maryland district, which includes parts of heavily Democratic Montgomery County.
