U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Birmingham, is uncontested in her party's primary, making it likely she will return to the House of Representatives next year.

The 7the Congressional District that Sewell represents is drawn to be heavily Democratic and majority black.

However, she did pick up one Republican challenger. Phil Norris of Hoover, a retired submariner with the U.S. Navy, will face Sewell on November's general election ballot.
