While much of the news coverage on Congressional primaries has been focused on races for the Senate, it has become apparent that there is a lot of action on the House of Representatives side. Republicans have ousted two incumbents in the Carolinas - Robert Pittenger was defeated by Baptist pastor Mark Harris in North Carolina and the controversial former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford lost to State Representative Katie Arrington. It would be in poor taste to not acknowledge that since her victory, Arrington was a victim in a tragic traffic incident.

Not to be outdone, the Democrats have delivered what many consider to be the upset of the season, as Joseph Crowley, widely viewed to be a future Speaker of the House, was ousted in New York by community organizer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As CNN reports, other candidates that have received Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement also have a chance at winning. With just a few months before the general election, there are still a number of incumbents at risk of not even making it to that point.

Stephanie Murphy (D)

Vietnamese immigrant Stephanie Murphy worked for the Defense Department and as a business professor before she was elected from Florida's 7th District in 2016. She faces stiff competition from Air Force veteran and former high-ranking ACLU official, Chardo Richardson.

Brian Mast (R)

Brian Mast is a highly-decorated Army veteran, in his first term from Florida's 18th District, who has been a vocal supporter of gun control. He has drawn competition from Dr. Mark Freeman, a controversial candidate who Mast has previously defeated in 2016.

Ann Wagner (R)

Ann Wagner, a former Chair of the Missouri Republican Party and US Ambassador to Luxembourg, has represented Missouri's 2nd District since 2013.

She is running against Noga Sachs, a daughter of Israel immigrants who the state party tried to force off the ballot.

Mike Capuano (D)

Mike Capuano has been a member of the House since 1999 and has received notoriety for being the uncle of actors Chris and Scott Evans. Boston City Councilwoman Ayanna Pressley is challenging Capuano for the seat from the 7th District of Massachusetts.

Early polling gave Capuano a comfortable lead, but the Boston Globe reports the race has since become much more intense.

Richard Neal (D)

In the 1st District of Massachusetts, longtime Representative Richard Neal is facing off with civil rights attorney, Tahirah Amatul-Wadud. Neal's challenger has criticized him for taking corporate donations, a tactic that was effective against Joseph Crowley.
