INDIANAPOLIS – Democratic Rep. André Carson has won reelection in Indiana’s 7th Congressional District, where he’ll serve for his seventh consecutive term.

Carson beat Republican Susan Marie Smith in Tuesday’s election, the Associated Press is projecting.

Carson will continue to represent the 7th District, which covers the lower four-fifths of Marion County -- most of Indianapolis.

He won the primary in May with 91% of the vote. Carson has been the representative from the 7th District since he won a special election in 2008 after the death of the previous representative, his grandmother Julia Carson.
